Colombia, Direct Trade
Smooth, nutty and chocolatey. This is a small-lot coffee purchased directly from the source. Giving you a better price, and the farmer a livable wage for their excellent coffee.
Stronger flavours of cherry and nuts but still very little acidity.
We lean toward the full-city roast, bringing out more caramel while preserving the sweet cherry finish.
More caramel and a very round body for your espresso. Goes well when layered with a foamy milk topping.
Networking actually works! We’ve bought a few different batches of coffee from Colombia in the past but this one is the first that we’ve purchased directly from the original grower. We met the owners of this small farm at a trade show pre-Covid. Their beans were excellent and over time (and a few beers) we managed to work out a direct trade agreement with them.
These beans are very Colombian in style. Smooth and sweetly voluptuous with a nice tart cherry taste when roasted light. The darker roasts express more mocha taste with a refreshing citrus aftertaste that keeps it all balanced.
Resting Your Coffee
Right after roasting, coffee needs some time to chill for a minimum of three days. Our roasting cycle ensures that when you receive the beans, it’ll already have rested the minimum needed. However, the flavours will continue to improve over a time. How long? Well that depends on the roasting level you ordered.
Generally your coffee will be at it’s peak after:
Light: 7-9 days after roast date
Roaster’s Choice: 5-7 days after roast date
Dark: 3-5 days after roast date
But every bean and person is different so please experiment and find what works for you!
No Pre-Ground Beans?
Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.
The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.
As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
