    This is such a cool and fun coffee! And most at the end of the day, really delicious.

    I actually get a lot of interesting tropical notes, pineapple, starfruit, lychee in the cup. The acidity is very bright. I get floral (almost Pink Bourbon-ish) muskmelon (I guess that's canteloupe!) and a bit of nuttiness pre-grind. There's a lot of acidity and a lot of natural sweetness. Only a very slight touch of funkiness.

    A super cool coffee and becoming a big fan of this producer Juan Pablo Velez!

    Cupping Method:I made it at 195F, 18:1 ratio on Hario v60.

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
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: Antioquia
Nestled in the Andes Mountains, Antioquian farms benefit from elevations ranging from 1,200 to 1,900 meters above sea level, where the cooler temperatures and unique microclimates contribute to coffee beans with chocolate notes, vibrant acidity, full body, and a delightful combination of fruity and nutty flavors.
