Guadalupe #2

<p> 
<b>Variety: </b> Colombia, Castillo
</p>
<p>
<b> Processing: </b> Washed
</p>
<p>
<b> Origin: </b>  Huila, Colombia

<b> Altitude: </b> 1400-1700m
</p>
<p>This tasty coffee was grown by small-holder farmers from the town of Guadalupe in southeastern Huila, who brought together cherries from their Colombia and Castillo plants to create a lot that showcases the particular flavor of their local area. The coffee was wet processed with a fermentation time of 24 hours before being spread out on patios to dry for 12 days. Many growers in Huila produce washed coffees in a similar manner, and as this lot demonstrates, it's a recipe for success. </p>
<p>
When you think of Colombian coffee, smooth and more chocolatey flavors may come to mind. However, Huila coffee is famous for its bright acidity and aromatic qualities - making it a favorite of specialty coffee roasters around the world. Coffees from Huila regularly win top prizes at Colombia's Cup of Excellence auction, and the quality of even an "average" Huila lot is impressively high. In this cup from Guadalupe, we're tasting oranges and some tart red currant - a real delicate flavor profile that stood out to us even among other coffees from Huila. Take some time to try a new brewing method here, we think this coffee will reward the effort.

Great Coffee; acidic

Great coffee, a little too acidic for me though.

I like it!

Takes getting the coffee to water relationship. Set right it is full and solid. I like it.

Guadalupe 2 Colombian

Another tasty Colombian; the coffee is very subtle, with a delicate, orange/grape taste. I really enjoyed it.

A neutral, easy-to-drink cup

Leans on the acidic side. It is not an overwhelming flavor, not overly complex. It is a great cup for anyone that enjoys diner coffee.

Good but not our favorite

The flavor is light and good but definitely doesn’t compare to the other coffee profiles we have received in the past! We like complex, deep coffee and this just wasn’t that!
