This coffee thinks it’s a chocolate-dipped strawberry! It’s fitting that we got our hands on such a beautiful cup just in time for Valentine’s Day. In this indulgent light roast, you'll taste a milk chocolate body perfectly balanced with a touch of sweet strawberry and tropical passionfruit. Kuma Coffee’s Colombia La Joya is a joy— literally!— to brew and behold.
We've raved about Kuma Coffee's meticulous selection of microlot coffees and this Colombian is no exception. Kuma is one of those true Seattle coffee gems, a small roaster who does what he does best and allows his work to speak for itself. They began roasting in 2007, for farmers’ markets and friends, and grew into a beloved local institution. Kuma’s coffees are small lots, all directly sourced by the founder, known for their distinctive, sugary-sweet profiles. With unanimously high-cupping scores from the beautiful coffee mecca of Nariño, Colombia La Joya is a cup worth gifting: to a loved one or to yourself.
The sweet, creamy Colombian La Joya is pure coffee joy. We carried this microlot last year and it was our Valentine’s Day hit. This year, it’s bound to fly off the shelves, so don’t miss your chance to put a decadent, chocolate-dipped strawberry into your mug. Reserve a bag of Kuma's Colombia La Joya, and join us in celebrating the love of the morning cup.
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Solid, but not particularly remarkable. There is a bright fruitiness to it, but overshadowed by an earthy, bitter aftertaste. Would probably go well with milk and sugar, but I drink mine black|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I wasn't a huge fan of this. It had a odd instant flavor I couldn't get passed. It may be because it's a light roast. I'm not sure. Moving to darker roasts though.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Make no mistake, this is a good coffee. I do however think it goes a little to far to say tasting notes of passionfruit. I taste none of that. I taste a dark, nutty chocolate. Still VERY good.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This was the first coffee I tried from Kuma and I really liked it but I am a huge fan of all things sweet.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Wasn't a fan of this one, no matter how I tried it. Taste was very meh.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I was expecting more flavor from this, especially since I've had such delicious coffees from Kuma. Tartness stood out too much for me, but it did have a good, light strawberry and chocolatey taste and little creaminess to it.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Brewed in my french press. A yummy, light, smooth coffee with notes of milk chocolate and berry.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Excellent, flavorful blend. The strawberry hints were exactly right when brewed in my french press. Would gladly order again.|
