Story of the bean: Producers in the San Roque Association process and dry their own coffees and deliver them to quality analyst, Duver Rojas, who tastes the coffees every day and pays incentives for the best beans The farmers' hard work on the steep hillsides unfolding below the San Roque Monastery and above the Magdalena River created this coffee of refined sweetness.
Awesome! wish it came in a 5lb. bag
Satisfying - delicate scent and taste ☕️
The San Roque coffee makes me want to get up early in the morning to have my one mug of oh so enjoyable delightful nectar. I think I’ve found the coffee I Ike the most. But, I haven’t tasted the other two yet.
The citrus notes in this coffee are amazing!
Best coffee ever
In my cabinet I have Lavazza, Illy and Pilon. Basically, I’ve stopped drinking those since discovering La Columbe. My method of brewing is French press. I drink one cup hot and chill the second cup for ice coffee later. I’m not good at describing the flavors - fruit or whatever. But it’s pretty darn good with whole lot of flavor and no bitterness.
Flavor profiles are very unique
