    This Bourbon Aji from the Lassos was quite different than what I was expecting. I recently had a natural Aji from Moises Chaguala where the smell of red chili was very strong, and there was a hint of in the cup. It was funky and wild.

    This is actually more of a restrained, polished coffee in line. It's very smooth and clean. When on the hotter side, I definitively picked up lavender. Also black tea, and concord grape.

    It's subtle enough that it was pretty hard to pick up the flavor profile at 196/17:1. The 200F with a bigger dosage and a more immersion-style brew helped, in my humble opinion.

    I wonder if the Irish know what a Concord grape tastes like!

    Cupping Method:I liked this better with my 17x17 recipe, which is 17g, 289g out. It's a bit closer to immersion style. I used 200F on the 17x17.

    The first time I made it I used 12.5g at 196F at a 17:1.

    Balanced and smooth, this roast features what I would call a rather traditional light roast flavor. It trends a bit floral, maybe tilting towards lavender, with a clean finish.

    Cupping Method:Vietnamese drip, cream with no sweetener

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Colombia
Colombian coffees are known for their balanced taste, featuring bright acidity, medium body, and a range of flavors, including fruity notes, caramel sweetness, and nutty undertones. Colombia's worldwide reputation for producing great coffee at scale is well-deserved. Increasingly some of the best microlot specialty roasts are coming from Colombia thanks to their expertise in cultivation and process.
Bean Source Region: Huila
The coffee-growing region of Huila, located in southwestern Colombia, is renowned for producing high-quality coffee due to a combination of factors, including its high elevations (1,200 to 2,000 meters above sea level), tropical climate with well-defined wet and dry seasons, rich volcanic soil, and diverse coffee varietals (such as Caturra, Colombia, Bourbon, and Typica). These conditions contribute to the slow development of coffee cherries, resulting in Huila coffee's bright acidity, medium to full body, and complex flavor profile, often including fruity, floral, and nutty notes. Combined with Colombia's strong technical expertise in cultivation and processing, results in some of the world's best specialty coffees.
