One Colombian coffee farmer, one farm, one classic cup. This limited-edition roast evokes all the romance of the Juan Valdez narrative of Colombian coffee: small farmers lovingly devoted to their practice in the midst of one of the largest coffee-producing countries of the globe.
We are excited to offer this coffee because its caramel-syrup mouthfeel and spicy final notes set it apart from other Colombian brews. Roasted well into medium range, Fonte produces a spicy, balanced cup that proudly displays a toasty, almost smokey, character alongside the beans' natural nutty-toffee flavors. A noticeable brightness emerges as the cup cools, but it's a brightness borne from toasted sugar rather than fruit flavors.
This coffee would make a fine cold brew, and a splash of cream wouldn't be unwarranted.
All in all, a classic flavor profile from the classic coffee country. A must-try for any coffee lover, or for fans of coffee that simply "tastes like coffee": roasts like this one wrote the script.
As a student, Javier Golondrino used to help his father pick coffee every season. When Javier turned 15, knowing that he had a knack and a love for farming, his father gifted him a small part of the family farm. Javier has managed to grow his small parcel of land into a reasonably-sized farm of 2 hectares and now cares for 10,000 Caturra and Colombia trees high in the hills surrounding the small town of La Plata in Colombia’s Huila department. Javier hand harvests all his coffee, resulting in an immaculate, nuanced coffee that is by necessity of very limited quantity. Notes of caramel dominate, and the cup cools to a white grape acidity. Delicate aromas of nutmeg and almond close into a long, toffee-like finish.
