This coffee arrives direct from Colombia, custom barrelled after we place the order, so we don't see it for 4 months after placing an order.
What's apparent about this coffee is the sugar cane sweetness of Rum, there are big notes of Chocolate and Raisin also and surprisingly clean.
Cold Brew - It's such a great coffee to start with, so it has great clarity black and takes on some winey characters which is nuts, on the spectrum like a Pinot Noir.
With a dash of milk (up to 50%) or some double cream, we arrive at Big Lebowski White Russian or a Baileys and Milk hybrid.
It's a 12.5-minute roast so the body is light so we are brewing at a 1(coffee) :10 (water) ratio for 24hrs then straining at gravity in a tody bag for 15 minutes, don't squeeze.
Espresso - I'm a rum drinker you can post blend this with your favourite home beans so you get a little preview of the sugar cane in your Flate White. The tighter you run the shot the more Rum you get out it.
At 100% as an espresso it's screaming for milk but worth the sensation all the same.
