One of the best things about coffees from Narino is the variety. Since Narino has such a robust coffee history, producers are growing all sorts of varietals and trying all sorts of processes to create unique coffees. This mix of Caturra, Colombia, and Castillo is a great example: the beans are fermented for 24 hours before washing and drying on raised beds. The result is outstanding flavor and clarity.
Cusillo is an extremely bright and acidic coffee that's sure to amp you up. A strong orange peel note lends some acidity to the cup, while a very bright cherry note gives the profile a good blend of tartness and fruity flavor. A honey note contributes sweetness and helps balance the tartness and acidity at play. We think this dynamic coffee is great, and we'd love to know if you agree.
