Roast Level . . . . . . . . . . . full city (medium)
Scoring 90 points on coffeereview.com, this coffee is one of several coffees from the Salgar Region. This particular lot is a 15-screen Arabica coffee grown at an elevation of 1600-1800 meters. Our direct trade relationship with the owners of La Finca Montaña ("Mountain Farm", in Spanish) allow us to provide this excellent Colombian coffee at an attractive price. We've roasted these to a medium (full city) level, to emphasize the overt chocolate flavors balanced with a full body and smooth lingering finish.
Here's what the farmer has to say about this coffee:
"The Salgar Region has long been a top producer of specialty coffee in Colombia. Spectacular vistas drop into lush, sun-kissed valleys which provide ideal growing conditions for Arabica coffee. The coffee we grow is much like our home in Salgar: complex yet delicate, bold yet easygoing, and always memorable."
Tasting notes on this coffee are chocolate, juicy and bright; velvety, with a prolonged residual. For brew methods, we enjoy it via pourover and especially espresso. It's also very good as a crowd-pleasing drip coffee.
