Tasting Series: El Paraiso
Origin: Narino, Colombia
Producer: John Gomez
Colombia Cup of Excellence 2020: 3rd
Say hello to El Paraiso, the Third Place finisher at the 2020 Colombia Cup of Excellence auction! We're over the moon to be bringing such an incredible Gesha coffee to the club - knowing coffees like this are out there was a big part of why we decided to set up the Tasting Series in the first place! John Gomez is a third-generation coffee producer who took over managing his family's farm El Paraiso ten years ago. He has focused on improving the quality of processing facilities on the property and is very happy with the results of this year's competition. He hopes that success at the auction will help position El Pariso's coffees for worldwide distribution in future harvests. If the beans keep coming out as incredible as this lot is - we're sure he'll reach that goal!
El Paraiso is a wonderful Gesha with all the right traits. Floral aromatics throughout make the brewing process as enjoyable as the drinking process - while delicate notes of bergamot and lemon create a striking mix of acidity and sweetness in the cup. After a few sips, we're confident that you'll understand why the farm is named after paradise: it simply doesn't get any better than this! We're so happy to join with a few other excellent roasters in the US to win this coffee at auction and even happier to be roasting and sharing it with the club.Each shipment will contain 3oz of roasted coffee

Wow. This was the best coffee I have ever had from the moment it touched my lips. Perfection. The elegance, smooth body, acid, fruit, and tight, lyrical structure of a Gesha but also the stuff Geshas lack: a poetic fullness, a middle range strong, classic coffee flavor that brings it all together. I wish I had bought more! Well worth $22 for 3 ounces, a sentiment I never thought I’d utter about any coffee. Mind blown.

I really enjoyed this as a pour-over and experimented with temperatures ranging from 200F to 170F to bring out different characteristics in the coffee. In both cases the coffee shined and left me wishing I had more to brew!

This was a superior coffee bean! We were still talking about it after we had brewed our last cup. The acid, fruit, and sweetness were well-balanced. 3 ounces was not enough!
What a treat this was
I loved this coffee. The acid and fuit were all well balanced. I've never had a Colombian coffee so elegant!
