This offering from Colombia is the result of a special project meant to highlight the unique characteristics of microlots in the Huila region. These characteristics come through as a distinct, tangy berry flavor that is rounded out by the rich, chocolatey, classic Colombian character.
We enjoy this coffee in a variety of brewing methods, but it really shines in a french press. An Aeropress or pourover method will bring out more of the herbal, tangy notes.

Tarrazu is sourced from a group of small coffee growers that have come together to offer the best micro lots of the Tarrazu region. We found this to be a very balanced coffee that is a perfect daily drinker, with pulped fruit notes and a smooth creamy body. We’ve found this coffee to be very consistent across drip, pour over, and immersion methods.
