Here in the Beanery, we call this the “candy bar coffee” because of its chocolate-caramel flavors. Let this cup be the indulgence that kicks off a day (or more!) of treating yourself well.
Finca El Calapo is owned by Santiago Salazar, a lifelong coffee grower. Certified organic beans, washed and sundried. A big-bodied coffee with notes of chocolate, caramel, and orange.
"There is a noticeable, but pleasant acidity. I didn't find the brew overtly sweet and the strongest flavor I noticed was chocolate. After trying the coffee on its own, I added a bit of cream, and the flavor reminded me of chocolate milk. Brewed cold with a V60 Fretta. " (3 out of 5)
"I found this sweet, but sharp. Drank as espresso with and without cream." (3 out of 5)
"This was a really great coffee, not too bold but strong." (4 out of 5)
"I generally like bolder coffees, but this one is outstanding! Smooth, strong chocolate notes without the bitterness of bolder roasts. I used the entire sample bag with 3.5 cups of water in a pour-over. I used a medium-sized grind." (5 out of 5)
"This is delightful; sort of an orange, almond, marzipan. Definitely a winner, bummed that it's sold out!" (5 out of 5)
"Tastes like a Take 5 candy bar. Salty and sweet with rich caramel." (5 out of 5)
"This was a mellow happy blend that got me up and going without being too bold or acidic first thing in the morning. I ground it at 18 on a Virtuoso Baratza burr grinder and brewed in the 8 cup Bonavita drip coffee maker. Super bummed it's sold out, really wanted to buy more after the experience. " (5 out of 5)
"I use a french press to brew this roast. The tasting notes are very subtle and a bit overpowered by the acidity of this coffee when consumed on its own. With that being said, this roast pairs very well with a morning treat (I quite enjoyed it with a cinnamon roll)!" (3 out of 5)
