The Colombia Guava Banana was carefully roasted for you by Dawson Taylor Coffee Roasters. This Caturra variety of coffee was grown 1,350 meters above sea level in the Tolima region of Colombia. Located in the micro-lot next to the washing station, and surrounded by Guava trees, this coffee profile has been one of the most intense and fruity coffees developed by the estate. The coffee is processed by a unique method that consists of a special two-step limited oxygen fermentation to develop a more intense but clean profile. Tropical and berry-like fruit flavors are prominent in the cup.
After getting this dialed in was a very nice, juicy fruit bomb with a good body and balance, but this one needed a *very* much finer grind than most and proved temperamental to get consistency. The flavors could have garnered 5 stars if more consistent.
Delicate and very tasty but not overly so, not overly bright. A bit of a tea-like quality
This is just another incredible coffee from the same plantation. These guys have to be one of the top 5 quality producers in Colombia. Americans and Europeans overall are not ready for this type of coffee but in the future this will be the standard: floral, juicy, and more like what coffee is meant to taste like. People must keep in mind that coffee is a cherry and these are its natural flavors. Not the acidic-crap that you get in 95% of coffee shops around the world.
Beautiful cup of juicy, fruity, wonderful coffee. I took my first sip and want more!
