Colombia Narino Taminango

There's so much sugar browning, with dark caramel and a creme brulee crust. Well developed sugars remain prevalent in the cup with notes of light brown sugar, wildflower honey, and butterscotch hard candy. As the temperature of the cup dips, fruits begin to emerge. While the fruit may not be super complex, there is a base of green grape and Asian pear that is unmistakable. Narino Taminango makes a great daily drinking coffee, and at a darker, Full City roast makes an amazing SO espresso. City+ to Full City.

Narino is the southernmost province in Colombia, bordering Ecuador. This is a very unique part of Colombia in that coffee can be grown at extremely high altitudes due to the climate that is a result of being in close proximity to the Equator. This particular lot is built from several small holder farms in the Taminango area, all ranging in altitude between 1700 and 2000 meters. These small farms are planted mostly in Caturra, and are situated in the highlands surrounding the main town of Taminango. Processing is simple, and utilities rudimentary, but quite efficient when done cleanly as this lot exemplifies. These are world class coffees and we plan on rotating through them rather quickly. Luckily, the harvest is almost constant in Narino, so hopefully we'll be able to offer new lots with some frequency.
Cupping this coffee is a nice reminder that all the work we put into building these new Colombian lots was well worth it. The dry grounds have a peach smell to them, like fresh stone fruit rather than dried. There's also a bran-like sweetness, and cacao, especially in the darker roast. Pouring hot water brings up raspberry and maple in the steam. Like all of our Narino coffees, the break is so sweet, with a note of hazelnut.

There's so much citrus like mandarin, lemon, and grapefruit, but with just enough chocolate to apply some restraint to the lively acidity.
