Tasting Notes: Chocolate, Cream, Citrus
Variety: Castillo, Caturra, Colombia
Origin: Caldas, Colombia
Producers: Hernando Garcia
Finca Sausalito is a typical small Colombian coffee farm in the Caldas department - family-owned and operated, utilizing about half of their land for coffee cultivation and leaving the rest for the family home, beneficio, vegetable gardens, and preserved natural forest. What isn't typical is how delicious this coffee is! Hernando Garcia's Castillo, Caturra, and Colombia plants must be very happy at Finca Sausalito because the flavors that they're displaying are incredibly rich and vibrant.
A strong chocolatey note leads the profile here, deep and fragrant with a low sweetness, which seems fitting as many of the worlds best chocolates are produced with Colombian cacao. A cup of Classic: Sausalito also has a really smooth, creamy quality which pairs nicely with its rich taste and makes for a mellow brew. A slight tint of citrus on the back end livens up the cup slightly without imparting much acidity, keeping the overall cup smooth and bold with a bit more dimensionality to the flavor. Classic: Sausalito is a great brew for any occasion, but we personally think it would go great with dessert. (Dinner party, anyone?)
