Brewing this was such a treat. It offered such a clean, light, endlessly drinkable cup. For me, I found strawberries and rose petals. Being a naturally processed coffee, there was the characteristic fermented quality, creating a rosé like drink, acceptable to consume just after the sun has risen.

Marcos Ramos’ beautiful fruit is grown in what is now known as Gaitania, Planadas, Tolima in Colombia. The ancient name for this region was Tala, Bocanegra, meaning something like the ankle/heel/foot, and the black-mouth.

On espresso it’s smooth, well rounded with a delicious caramel aftertaste. As a filter coffee, expect warming notes of butterscotch and milk chocolate, balanced beautifully with a hint of lemon and a tangy acidity. It’s sweet, toffee-like, and exactly the kind of coffee I love to drink.
