Tasting Notes: Caramel, Cinnamon, Sweet Bread
IT ALL STARTS AT THE COFFEE FARM
This coffee was grown in the communities of Tablón de Goméz and Buesaco in Nariño. Our importer partner Caravela collected crops from smallholder farmers in northern Nariño with the end goal of building a coffee with dense, sweet flavors, and confection-like aromas.
Caravela has an office in the nearby town of Los Rosales, where they tasted each coffee and decided which ones would get blended to make this lot.

HOW DID WE ROAST THIS COFFEE?
This coffee is being roasted by Ian T. from 31st January to 24th February in Long Island City, Queens. We typically use the Loring Kestrel roaster for this profile. We have strict guidelines for each of the coffee profiles, and this roast has to pass the development time ratio test as measured in real-time by the roasting software, Cropster. Once it does, it is approved for production.
We perform Quality Control via a process of coffee tasting called cupping on all of our production roasts once a week from home as per our Covid-19 shelter in place guidelines. Each cupping is conducted by our roasting staff Kieran D. and Ian T. using standard equipment, and is logged by our Q-certified cupper Ian T. All coffees are evaluated on a scoring scale of 0 to 3.
- 3.0 = exceptional roast - exceeds expectations
- 2.5 = on par with profile - matches expectations
- 2.0 = good roast, but 1 or 2 elements could be improved - needs improvement
- 1.5 or lower = failed - do not ship
