Honeydew, Raspberry, Chocolate

Variety: Caturra, Castillo, Supremo

Processing: Washed

Crop Year: 2016

Origin: Narino, Colombia

Producers: Samaniego Small Holders

Altitude: 1700m-1900m

This week, our coffee comes from the fabled Narino department of Colombia. A land with extremely mountainous terrain, the coffee plants grown at this altitude are subject to warm days and cool nights. This means the plants grow slowly, and some people believe this gives the cherries more time to develop tasty flavors. This coffee might convince us, because it certainly delivers in the flavor department. A bright honeydew melon note leads, coupled with raspberry sweetness and the faintest hint of dark chocolate. If there's such a thing, this is a sipping coffee. (Meaning you'll want to drink slowly, to savor every drop!)
