Bomba de Fruta
Raspberry, Pineapple, Lively
Origin: Huila, Colombia
Producers: Ana Cecilia Uribe
With a name like 'Bomba de Fruta' - you know you're in for some strong, fruity flavors! This coffee was grown in Huila on Ana Cecilia Uribe's Finca La Cumbre farm. Ana is the matriarch of a well-known coffee producing family in Huila that operates under the name "Alma de Huila" (the soul of Huila) and manages 5 different coffee farms. They used to process all their coffees at the farms, but when they started to see more interest in naturals they realized they needed a facility in a drier area of Huila - so they built a central beneficio in the town of Garzon where specialty lots are sent to be processed as naturals. The lower altitude and drier conditions allow them to produce some really stellar naturals with strong, bright fruit notes - something that the Uribe name has now become known for in Huila!
This coffee certainly doesn't disappoint - they name hits the nail on the head with an explosion of fruit flavor from the get-go. We're picking up on a very distinct raspberry note with a good sweetness and acidity - as well as a more tropical fruit flavor akin to pineapple that adds even more layers of acidity and sweetness. For fans of naturals, or just folks who want to try a coffee that's unbelievably flavorful and dynamic - this lot is a must-brew. Cheers!
