Description

Variety: Caturra, Colombia, Castillo

Producer: Huila Smallholders

Processing: Washed

Origin: Huila, Colombia

El Divinito is the name for crafted microblends from the department of Huila. The farmers in Huila are small, and harvest is very spread out. Coffees are picked in 3-4 passes, fully washed, then pulped and fermented in a traditional way. After dry fermentation, coffee is stirred in tanks or small channels to remove floaters before being sundried. Drying in Huila can be a challenge; due to the weather being wet and humid, beans are vulnerable to defects. Because of this, producers have well ventilated facilities to protect their coffee. When small-holders don't have enough cherry for a micro-lot, they'll grade their coffees and combine like grades to make a lot big enough to sell. This is one of those such lots - one of the top graded ones, and you can taste it!

This Colombian coffee is fruit forward and complex. It's layered and elgant with a soft, juicy mouthfeel. We got notes of blackberry, tangy dried fruit, and juicy peaches. Let us know what you think of this one, and don't forget to leave a rating for other members to read!

Fruity and smooth

Not quite as bright as I was expecting, but still quite fruity/floral. A hint of earthiness helps balance it out

El Divinito

Not as complex as advertised, but this is still a nice coffee, fruity, nicely balanced, with a smooth finish.

Peachy and delicious

One of the best-smelling coffees I've encountered, taste is an absolutely pleasant, crisp fruity profile, chiefly peach. I've had a good deal of light-roasted coffees that taste of peach, so it wasn't exactly a new experience, but of those I've had this ranks above the rest. Brewed this one almost exclusively in a V60 with the fast 02 filters around 14 on an Encore. Was also excellent brewed over ice in the V60 (Hoffmann method, 40% of water as ice).

That stonefruit-y note is so often an Ethiopian trait, it's fun to see it show up so clearly in a coffee from another part of the world.
