Colombia Las Mercedes Lote La Florida Caturra
• Petit Beurre
The La Florida is from the same estate as the La Gallineta lot, and even sweeter and cleaner.
Traditional Colombian coffees have the reputation for ranking among the best coffees in the world. Ever since the early 19th century, Colombia has been producing and exporting coffees that are renowned for their full body, bright acidity and rich after taste.
The region of Antioquia, Cundinamarca and Northe of Tolima, produces rather balanced coffee, with fruity and herbal notes, without losing the specific characteristics of each micro-region.
The La Florida is a Caturra (variety bean) from the Northern side of the finca where the coffees tend to taste sweeter and more acidic.
We can recommend to brew the coffee on regular, manual drip filter. Don’t go too high in temperature – 90 degrees max – and pour on for 2 minutes. Let it drip out and serve.
In the cooling down you’ll notice the very interesting buttery mouthfeel, while it grows in sweetness.
