Colombia Huila Valencia
This coffee rocks!
Huila Valencia of Colombia is my favorite producer of Colombian coffee. This is the creamiest and smoothest washed mild coffee and the standard by which all others should be judged. The fresh grind is aromatic and fruity, even a bit sweet smelling. It has the cherry and the spice.
However, the sweetness of the grind dissipates in the cup to roasted barley and graham cracker. The lingering mouthfeel is very smooth: the whole effect of the coffee is smooth.
Colombian coffee is true specialty coffee.
Aroma: Sweet, Ripe Coffee Cherry with Brown Sugar Overtones
