Black coffee isn’t usually a hit for those with a sweet tooth, but this Colombian will be: it smells like melted strawberry ice cream and tastes like a cherry candy. Life is short; sip dessert first!
This Excelso-grade coffee is from Finca Cochas, a small cooperative farm in Narino region. Grown at 1800-1950 meters above sea level. Bright notes of cherry candy and sugar plum.
"Smooth and a bit fruity, this is a good example of dark roast where the roasting doesn't totally hide the flavor profile. Still, it's not as sweet as expected and I still needed a touch of cream in mine to balance slight hairiness. (V60 and French Press)." (4 out of 5)
"Very nice fairly mild. Good mid range coffee. I use an aero press and it brings out the fullest flavor profiles." (4 out of 5)
"Chocolate and cherry flavor yield a fantastic cup! Chemex brewed." (4 out of 5)
"A good cup, but nothing really stood out. Based on the description, I was expecting a super sweet brew. In my opinion, it had more chocolate undertones as opposed to cherry candy. I prepared this as a pour over using a V60. " (3 out of 5)
"Nice coffee with sweet finish. Brewed in my new super automatic espresso machine. Drank as both espresso and a cappuccino. Would try again. " (3 out of 5)
