Why this coffee?
This is a classic Colombia which works well whichever way you decide to use it. There is some fruit in the cup, but expect that caramel and milk chocolate note to be your first taste, with some gentle orange hints.
If you love Colombian coffee or fancy something with a bit more fruit than a classic Brazil, this is a good coffee to try.
This coffee makes the perfect espresso, flat white and milk drinks. We have been using 18g in, 36g out for the classic espresso in 30s.
As a filter, it will be a perfect everyday drinker, but don't expect a super light roast head juicy head turner. Aeropress, Cafetiere, and Cleverdripper - this is one for you.
