Suitable for: Espresso and Filter (Medium Roast)

Coffee from three farms in the San Lorenzo municipality of Nariño, Colombia combine for this microlot. As I sit with a mug of a cooling V60 I'm struck by the juiciness of this coffee and the pleasant sweetness that lingers long after taking a sip. 

Brewed as a filter coffee you'll be greeted by the rounded taste of a perfectly ripe red apple, with a touch of light brown sugar. A tasty cup is easily achieved with little effort, and with a V60 I would recommend the usual ratio of 10g of coffee to 170g of water. 

As espresso the sweetness is accentuated, and you will taste a gentle orange caramel instead as the acidity gives way to deeper flavours. Pull your shot slightly on the short side for best results: 18g in and 32g out works for me. 

Because we’re the smallest of small businesses we roast all orders once per week on a Saturday. Only orders received before 9am each Saturday are guaranteed to be roasted that day. If we have enough bags left over to fulfil late orders we will be happy to send those out ASAP, but otherwise orders received afterwards will be roasted the following week.
