Alvira’s Extraction

Our Quality Assistant,  Alvira (@alvira_kanusa) has been brewing it up. Have a look at his favorite recipe of this month! 

Chosen lot, flavor notes:

Café Santa Maria

Orange, citrus, caramel, honey, clean aftertaste, smooth body.

This is the Quality 2 from Santa Maria Buying Station in Northern Huila. Although total lot consists out of many smallholders, each small lot has been cupped throughly to create consistency. The aim is a 83 scoring lot in Colombia, and it often picks up 1,0 point resting on the voyage.
