Curator's Notes

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.

Roaster's Notes

This is our first year purchasing coffee from Yermi Arias, and it is an absolute banger. From his farm La Joya at 1950 meters, Yermi harvested his crop mid summer, fermented for 12 hours and dried it on raised mesh beds for 5 days. This 100% castillo lot unanimously scored highly at origin and came in pristine provenance. Sweet red plum throughout, milk chocolate body and sweetness, with a hint of strawberry and citric acid to balance it. This is what Nariño coffees are all about, and this is a brilliant example of why we return to it year after year. Enjoy.

"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. "

"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."
