If you haven't heard of the Santaurio region yet, you will soon. An up-and-coming municipality in the Risaralda department of Colombia, Santaurio is part of the fabled 'Colombian Coffee Triangle,' an area regarded as the perfect habitat for growing exceptionally high-quality beans. Pair that with the Risaralda cooperative's commitment to rigorous coffee education and environmentally sustainable development, and you know you're in for a real treat. A mix of local castillo, caturra, and supremo varietals, this coffee is a great encapsulation of all the good things headed our way in Colombian coffees of the future!
The main note you'll find in a cup of Santaurio is a strong, full chocolate flavor. More dark chocolate than milk chocolate, this cup exhibits great texture and depth. A warm tobacco note gives the cup some gravity, while a touch of black pepper adds the right amount of spice to keep things interesting. If there's such a thing as a confident cup of coffee, this is it. Enjoy!
