So rich and caramel-smooth, this new Colombian practically melts in your mouth! Our friends at True North have done it again with Colombia Nariño Chavez, a charming Latin cup from Colombia’s specialty coffee haven. The body is silky and oh-so-smooth, with a body like sweet vanilla caramels. Notes of cinnamon-sprinkled apricot fill out the cup, and a hint of ruby red grapefruit sparkles in the finish. Simply put, it’ll give any caramel macchiato a run for its money.
Located on the Pacific Ocean, bordering Ecuador, Nariño is the spot where the Andes mountain range rises into Colombia. It was originally targeted by Spanish explorers in the 1500s, who were searching for the mythical, golden El Dorado. While they came away empty handed, we think this coffee from the region would’ve made a fine consolation prize. Specialty coffee from Nariño is still a family affair, where entire communities come together to harvest and process their beans. The name of the farm, Las Delicias, speaks for itself; grower Jesus Orlando Chavez is one of the small-lot producers whose quiet, consistent work gives Colombian coffee its worldwide appeal.
Over the past couple of years, True North Coffee Roasters have become a cult classic for their nitro cold brew; owner and roaster Maine specifically sources the creamiest, sweetest single origins for this treat. For a make-at-home version, the rich, sweet profile of Colombia Nariño Chavez makes it an excellent candidate for your first cold brew of the year. This microlot is available for a limited time only, and it’s True North’s last Colombian of the year. Reserve your bag today, and treat yourself or someone special to the vanilla caramel Colombian before it’s gone for good.
