    Smells just like sugar cane juice out of the bag!

    Smooth and tastes good, acidity is a bit simple.

    This roast leans dark, and has an unexpected hint of lime. A rather intense acidity emerges, lending complexity to the sipping experience.

    This was a pretty unique and interesting coffee that I enjoyed. I left with the feeling that I didn't quite get the perfect extraction of it.

    First is the aroma which is pure sugar cane juice. I grew up drinking it and chewing sugar cane, and it's a full on hit including nostalgia!

    The coffee...

    I tried 4 temps and grind sizes. No matter what I got an aromatic and smooth cup of coffee with a lot of natural sweetness. Bergamot mid palate, and a slightly buttery mouthfeel seemed consistent. I got a bit more of a lactic taste at the highter temps.

    The roater described a creamy lime, and I think that's fair. I wanted more, and a bit more acidity would have taken it over the top. This sounds like it was a complex fermentation technique, and it's definitely a unique coffee. I think everyone is still sorting out the market expectation for Pink Bourbon, and I've had a couple similar to this one that are quite floral and muted on the acidity.

    Cupping Method:v60 pourover from 195F to 205F, Chemex at 204F. I bought the bag from Resident directly on the Internet.

    The lime notes came out strong for me, especially mid-sip. I enjoyed the sweet/tart contrast in this one.

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.
