We’ve added a fantastic new Colombian coffee to our range this week, courtesy of our friends at Rounton Coffee Roasters in Northallerton, who explain a little more about the coffee, here:
“Flor Penna is a member of the ASORCAFE producer group in Inza, Cauca – a prolific coffee growing region in Colombia, a this lot has been selected as being particularly special.
Historically, this area of Colombia has been particularly hard-hit by guerilla presence. The violence in the area, as well as the prevalence of private buyers paying unfair prices, has meant that the specialty coffee scene has not always had a firm presence. The work of the ASORCAFE group is helping to change this.
It was last year that we decided to buy our first premium micro-lot from Colombia, and we haven’t looked back. These lots (which usually bear the name of a single producer) are really pushing the boundaries of Colombian coffee.”
Like most colombian coffee, Flor Penna is very accessible. This particular lot from Flor Penna has a brilliantly soft, poached pear-like sweetness, and a milky finish that adds a beautiful balance. Perfect as a filter, or as a slightly wild espresso option!
