Roast Level: Light
Bean Source Country: Colombia
Bean Source Region: Risaralda
Varietal: Caturra
Process: Nitro Washed

This lot of Caturra coffee underwent Nitro Washed processing. Freshly harvested coffee cherries were first fermented in bags for 10–12 hours. The fermented coffee was then pulped and fermented for another 10–12 hours in a plastic tank with the mucilage still attached. The coffee was then fermented for 4–6 days in a sealed bioreactor with added yeast and nitrogen before finally being sun dried for 15–20 days.

    When you open the bag, you're just smashed by the stunning aroma of watermelon jolly ranchers and lychee. I've done it for a bunch of friends and family members and they've blown away.

    The coffee itself - when hot, it's still quite fruity, watermelon, then a hint of rooibos. It's a bit floral tool. It cools to a chuggable raspberry peach iced tea. Some hints of pineapple and guava.

    So so good.

    Cupping Method:3x pourover, 18:1, 196F. This coffee was part of Leaderboard, and I scored all 9 points guessing that it was a Colombian co-ferment since that's where most of this experimental type processing is coming out of.

    Wow, this is the most uniquely flavored coffee I've sampled! It is a bit hard to tease out from a single cup, but the flavors were distinctly melon-centric. I feel like I could taste ALL the melons at once-- watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew, balanced out with an underlying earthiness. The earthy/floral/melon aroma that accompanied the cup was an additional unique surprise. I imagine that a flavor profile this unique could be quite divisive, but I liked it. Less remarkably, there was a nice, sweet acidity and a rich mouthfeel.

    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: Risaralda
Grown in the rich volcanic soils of the Andes Mountains, coffee from Risaralda often has a balanced acidity and a smooth, velvety body. Its flavor profile is often characterized by notes of caramel sweetness, citrus brightness, and hints of cocoa, reflecting the unique microclimate and altitude of the region.
