This unique offering has become foundational in our Colombia sourcing programs for the last five years. Farmed by the Inga Indigenous community these coffees are intensely sweet like honey accompanied by an underlying fruit pulp and floral nature. This year’s offering has been extra laborious as we cupped through an extraordinary amount of small farms in the village finally purchasing 18 in total and homogenizing them at origin. This is our best Aponte release to date and hats off to the producers and our cupping team for this offering.
I have brewed this in a Kalita and now Clever. Flavor profile has been very muddy with hints of cherry and some sweetness but nothing that wows the mouth. Need to continue to work on dialing this in.
Did this twice now as a kalita wave following the Onyx Labs filter instructions. Notes came through but a very finicky bean. Very easy to pull cocoa powder through that overpowers the more subtle notes.
