    Leaderboard Season 14 blind tasting.

    On the grind, a fruit jammy aroma (Polaner's tropical?) and a hint of wine. From the first sip, it was clear that this was something specialfruity and floral, even more than a gesha.

    I had a feeling it was a coferment, and I was right. The flavors were very bright, with distinct notes of strawberry and lemonade adding a refreshing brightness. There was also a hint of lychee, which added a unique, sweet dimension, but not overwhelming.

    I got heavy lavender note (not rose which was in the co-ferment) - this was pretty strong and tied in with a bit of funkiness. This is a really fun coffee that tastes different at each temprature.

    Great to find out it was Resident, a roaster that's barely put a foot wrong in my multiple experiences with them.

    Cupping Method:I made 2 batches on Hario v60 - 196F, 18:1 ratio (20g/360g).

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: Quindio
Quindío, located in Colombia's Coffee Triangle, produces exceptional coffee characterized by its unique terroir. High altitude, volcanic soil, and a favorable equatorial climate contribute to the coffee's distinct flavor. Quindío's Arabica beans are known for their well-balanced, medium to full body and bright acidity. Flavor notes include fruity and sweet nuances like berries and citrus, along with chocolate, nuts, and caramel.
