Colombia Huila Fredy Diaz

A note of black tea sits atop a fruited profile of apple, pear, and ripe peach. Taking the roast toward Full City will bring about flavors of green grape and blackberry, as well as a sweetness of chocolate milk. The finish is like fine cocoa with a layer of toasted nut underneath. This coffee also makes an absolutely amazing SO espresso. City+ to Full City.

This coffee from Fredy Diaz comes to us from the Municipality of Bruselas, located within the greater Department of Huila. A good deal of the Huila coffees we're bringing in this year dot the mountainous hillside up and around the Canton, or "County" of Pitalito. This area is ripe with small holder farmers who use traditional wet mill processing. Fredy's farm sits at about 1700 meters, and is a whopping 3 hectares. Definitely small scale production, and we're glad we were able to separate the 8 bags from his last crop and offer them as a microlot. It's one of the better lots from this final container of Colombias, and already has us longing for next season!
This lot from Fredy Diaz has a defining characteristic of confectionary sweetness all the way through. The dry grounds smell like Turkish pastries, with a smattering of honey and pistachios. Full City roasts have an apple wood sweetness, and a note of beeswax. Water brings about a smell of dried flowers and brown sugar, as well as vanilla extract. Dark roasts are so sweet as well and have a touch of melting baker's chocolate and butter. Thankfully, the cup matches such an aromatic pedigree. Light roasts have the flavor and silkiness of raw honey. A note of black tea sits atop a fruited profile of apple, pear, and ripe peach. Taking the roast toward Full City will bring about flavors of green grape and blackberry, as well as a sweetness of chocolate milk. The finish is like fine cocoa with a layer of toasted nut underneath. This coffee also makes an absolutely amazing SO espresso. The profile is heavy with chocolate and with a hint of tart blackberry. Creamy and sweet - how espresso should be.
