Item information

Description

Variety: Caturra, Typica, Castillo

Processing: Washed

Crop Year: 2017

Origin: Tolima, Colombia

Producers: Asopep Cooperative

Altitude: 2000m

This coffee originated in the Tolima region of Colombia, where it was grown by several members of the Asopep cooperative. A robust organization, Asopep's members have control over the entire production process from harvesting all the way to transporting their coffees to port for shipping. A brand new cupping lab allows members to continually improve their quality, leading to even more excellent coffees like this one! Flavor-wise, this coffee is a decadent experience. A tangy note of dried prune adds some sweetness to the dark chocolate note that makes up the majority of the profile. There is a hit of citrus flavor that adds some zest, but overall Asopep remains a low-acidity, smooth coffee that we felt was perfect for our Classic profiles. Drink up, and let us know what you think!

A fine coffee, but not as outstanding as the regular profile coffees we've had previously.

Solid coffee

Solid coffee but I’ve found my tastes have adapted to the more flowery profiles.

Very Classic

Average the first brew with small volume... The second and following brews were outstanding with at least a two cup volume and a screen filter which allowed more oils I guess... big difference.

Very Nice, Interesting Colombian

Extremely tasty and well-balanced with a heartier body than I have experienced in a Colombian. A+!

Had a hard time getting a consistent, balanced espresso cup

As usual, I had to increase dosage and extraction time quite a bit to even approach a pleasant cup. Still ended up with more acid than I care for - despite your description of it being low-acid! But I like the chocolate/prune flavor combination, but I guess I need to work more to get the extraction right.
