<p>This lot of coffee comes from Jaime Ariza's La Virgen farm - though its production and drying process is managed by Juan Saldarriaga at his La Claudina farm. Juan has a lot of specialty capabilities for processing and drying, and it's great that he's spreading those resources around to other small farmers that want to take their coffee's flavors to new heights! This small lot from Mr. Ariza's farm is washed and dried under parabolic beds at La Claudina which produces an even moisture content and a smooth, clear flavor that we're in love with.
<p>
We're picking up on some rich, deep notes in this lot - starting off with a juicy plum note that's sweet and not too tart - accompanied by a warm brown sugar flavor that gives the cup a hint of spice. Overall though, it's a coffee that's extra smooth and rich - a bean that will really reward some tinkering with deep, full-bodied flavors. Antioquia has so many unique flavors to offer - and we hope you enjoy this one this week!

Flavor profile Shines Through

The flavor is amazing. The brown sugar layers on top of the boldness of the flavor. Not overpowering but enough flavor that the notes are distinct. I usually like Dark Roasts more so but this gave a run for the money.
