Huila region of Colombia
Muttley & Jack's
A smooth, complex coffee - Almond aroma with a hint of milk chocolate. A lively taste that reminds one of autumn berries.
Cupping Score - 87
Huila, situated in the southwestern part of Colombia, is full of mountains, rivers and... of course, coffee. Around 16% of Colombian coffee is grown in this region.
Like most of the growers in the region Javier Cuellar Muñoz has small farm (around 2 hectares) and is part of the Cadefihuila cooperative with other local growers. The farm is at 1800m altitude.
Similar to many coffees from Colombia this roast has a milk chocolatey character with hints of almond and cherry. What makes this coffee from Javier's farm stand out from the rest are the delicate acid notes of slightly acidic berries - like redcurrant and blackberry. This makes for an exciting flavour experience - the sweet and the sour notes in perfect balance for a smooth, complex taste.
After the coffee has been picked by hand it undergoes a process known as "fully washed". This means the coffee is first pulped (outer skin is removed by machine), then fermented for 1 - 2 days, and then washed again. This results in extremely high quality coffee with 'lively' notes.

This was the parcel the postman didn't want to hand over as it made his Van smell so good! Definitely a complex coffee with GREAT subtlety. Make this up in a French Press and be instantly transported to South America.
