City+ roasts are sweet, lively white grape and raw cane sugar, some malt caramel/vanilla. Full City develops more chocolate tones, dark plum, and a much longer finish. City+ to Full City+. Good for espresso.
This is our second round of Colombia coffees purchased through a new intermediary we started working with at the end of 2014. With this container, we were able cup many, many more samples than the first, and constructed a couple small-producer blends based off similar cup "personalities". This Timana de Huila blend is all about balance - sweetness, bittering "coffee" qualities, fruit notes, and acidity - all equally represented. The farmers are part of a 30+ member association in Timana (the first pic is of Timana town, from above), put together with a focus of increasing quality and production quantity, as well as the ability to export their coffees. Most farms are planted in Caturra, and grown up at 1500+ meters. Processing is done onsite with hand crank pulpers, and the coffee is dried on raised parabolic beds.
