Lucky you! For a short time, you've got the opportunity try one of the cleanest, creamiest, most delicate coffees I've tasted so far this year. Colombia El Carrizo is a limited lot from our friends at Kuma Coffee, who reserved a small portion just for Bean Box customers. This is one of those coffees you'll feel before you taste, because of its exquisite structure and silky mouthfeel— light but creamy, like freshly-whipped merengue. Its clean, vibrant sweetness is reminiscent of fruit-infused hibiscus tea, with a sparkle of raspberry and sun-ripened nectarine. Sharing many of the sublime qualities we love about Gesha coffees, Colombia El Carrizo is a rare stunner at an amazing price. Get this one while you can— it WILL sell out!
One of the things you'll note about this particular coffee is very little bitterness, and here's why: high-grown coffees like El Carrizo contain less caffeine than other types of coffee. That's right! Caffeine in plants is a natural pest and fungal repellent, and plants grown at higher altitudes need fewer, and produce fewer, of these compounds. Since caffeine is one of the chemicals in coffee that contributes to its bitter taste, this can make a big impact on flavor. Since anything over ~1200 meters or so is considered high-grown, El Carrizo's 2150 meter elevation is almost literally miles above the rest. With this farm-direct relationship, Kuma certainly has friends in high places... and now, so do you!
With its soaring provenance, stunning clarity, and raspberries-and-cream flavors, this limited lot of Colombia El Carrizo can only be described as heavenly. I'm so excited to give you the opportunity to try this sweet, sparkling cup for yourself. We have less than 100 bags of this coffee, so don't delay, and reserve your bag today! Once it's gone, it's gone for good, and we'll just have to hope that next year's lot is just as dazzling as this one...
