Curator's Notes

A cup this juicy, this silky-smooth? It’s no illusion! This naturally processed Colombia is a rare treat, with bright notes of orange and a savory finish that reminds us of a bowl of Bananas Foster. It’s the stuff awakenings are made of.

Roaster's Notes

Grown in Huila, Colombia, by a small farmer who became involved in coffee through a government program to help those displaced by conflict. This sun-dried natural lot has notes of orange, ripe banana, and a rich caramel finish.

"Very interesting coffee -- I enjoyed it for sure. It really does have a blood orange taste, with a hint of sweet bananas. I would recommend trying this one."

"In the french press, it comes across as a strong bold cuppa with a slight caramel and some sort of fruity combo. "

"A light roast. The caramel taste stood out some. .The fruit flavors - not so much "
HEATHER 07/29/2018

"Really enjoyed this pot of coffee. My favorites tend to be light to medium roasts and this light roast does the trick. Good flavor not masked by the cream I put into it, and their description of this coffee being silky smooth is spot on! Would love to orde this one again!"

"This coffee is unbelievable. Sad to see it’s sold out already, but as usual Slate is killing it. Amazing fruit notes, sweet caramel and clean finish. It’s amazing chemex brewed."

"Did not brew this sample pack very well, but definitely got the essence of it. Very nice coffee. Never had a coffee that had banana notes in it, which I liked a lot, and which blended nicely with the fruit and caramel-like flavors. Brewed french press."
REBECCA 07/23/2018
★★★★★
"Brewed in french press. Very flavorful coffee, interestingly enough the coffee Dora's have a faint banana note as described. Enjoyed the coffee from a good roaster. "

"This one is EXCELLENT! Banana, caramel & orange pair beautifully together! Great with or without cream! Yummy!"
NICOLE 07/17/2018

"(Review #57 -- 3.9 / 5) Holy orange, this might be orange juice. This roast is filled with immense aroma and flavor - a very tart, savory roast that screams oranges, with hints of banana gracing the back of the tongue. A bit sharp, not quite as smooth as suggested by the beanbox review."
