Colombia Cauca, Ariel Buitron Microlot
This coffee was part of a development project for coffee quality that led to a local competition in South Cauca, and though this lot didn't quite win (it placed 3rd) it is most representative of true "Cauca" character. The cup has violet floral quality with dark plum fruit and a buttery creaminess. As it cools, raisin sweetness and hints of hazelnut come through. It's a really attractive, balanced cup. I had best results at City+ roast, but think it works well with a fairly wide range of roasts.
