Ripe fruit saturates the cup finishing silky with rich chocolate notes. In the middle of the cup, juicy and ripe plum transitions to peach giving the cup a structured acidity. As it cools, that brightness turns almost pulpy like fresh-squeezed juice grounded by the structure of milk chocolate qualities.
Ever wondered what the future of coffee tastes like? We think it tastes like progress and delight!
Roast House has supported World Coffee Research for some time now, donating an additional fee per pound of green coffee we purchase across the board. This year, that support has paid off with a delightful harvest of the F1 Hybrid at Aquiares in Turialba, Costa Rica. This variety was grown 1,300 meters above sea level and processed using the washed method.
Sweet and layered aromatics range from cardamom to spiced apple cider. An easy-drinker through and through. The cup pops with a sweet, pleasant nuttiness similar to macadamia nuts. The finish carries that fresh red apple cider taste making for an delicious coffee to crush mug after mug.
Our second offering from La Pradera! Elena, with her immense knowledge of specialty coffee in Colombia, introduced us to Hacienda La Pradera. From those first samples, we knew a longer term relationship was being born. Over the course of the last year, Dean at Ally Coffee Importers helped us develop that relationship.
Mildred Daza, owner with her husband Oscar of La Pradera, helps with administration and leads the women’s coffee project, Finca Santa Maria. A group of 22 women, all heads of their household, together operate the farm. We are proud to offer this delicious coffee for the next season!
The Castillo variety was grown at 1,800 meters above sea level and processed using the washed method.
Expect a massive amount of chocolate and caramelized sugars brightened with a juicy acidity reminiscent of perfectly ripe pears. The finish is filled with butter toffee and juicy stone fruits ranging from peach to apricot. Perfectly sessionable!
