Like a Diamantina in the sky... this brew twinkles! A mellow, clean body like watermelon juice and strawberries resolves into a spicy-sweet finish of candied ginger. A coffee to cleanse the palate and enliven the day.
Our first Colombian coffee of the year is from the municipality of Iquila in Southern Huila. This coffee has a strong panela (Condensed raw Colombian sugar) backbone and beautiful summer fruit reminiscent of watermelon and strawberry and a lovely zip of ginger in the finish.
"Very interesting flavors in this coffee. I enjoyed this brew and will try again when in season"
"I brewed using an aeropress. The brown sugar is very pronounced, I did think it had a well rounded black tea note as well. My favorite cup in the February box. I drank this alone, and it stood alone as a star! "
"This is phenomenal! I never liked light roasts because they tasted water-y to me, but this was absolutely divine! I would DEFINITELY purchase again and recommend to all my friends!"
"Delicious taste, almost slightly sweet smelling. A great coffee to wake up and drink."
"This is probably among the best lighter roast coffees I've had. fruity, sweet, and pleasant overall. Lacks a little in the oomph department for my liking, and definitely better in a french press than drip. "
"I was not sure how a coffee with watermelon and strawberry notes would taste, and I can now assure you, it's delicious. I really picked up on the watermelon and sweetness, this is a great coffee."
"I don’t understand how coffee can smell like strawberries, but the notes in this coffee do not disappoint. Smells amazing brewing and tastes just as well. Brewed in a Ninja."
"I usually go for medium roasts and was skeptical about this light roast - but it was actually delicious! My husband loved drinking it black and I enjoyed it in a latte. Very happy that it was in my sampler!"
"I don’t usually go for the lighter roasts but I’ll try anything because you never know. With my first sip I knew it would be a coffee I was going to enjoy. I can’t say I agree with the flavor notes but I can definitely taste the natural sweetness the bean brings. Will definitely be drinking a more. "
"Tried this roast several ways-espresso,drip, french press This coffee is better black It is very simple in flavor without anything over powering or any bitterness Upon opening bag- first scent is strong and almost smells slightly charred. Grinded-sweeter notes Beans- nice and dry-no oils "
