Description: Caldas, the state  that this coffee comes from, is part of Colombia's famous Coffee Triangle, which also includes Quindio, Risaralda, and Tolima. Regions all known for incredible coffee quality. The Montebonito Township is located high up in mountains of Caldas, surrounded by clouds and green hillsides where agriculture - led by coffee - drives the economy. The Cooperativa de Caficultores Manizales is made up of 94 smallholder producers who farm less than 1 hectare on average, in the 1800 MASL township.

We loved the pre-ship sample of this coffee so much we literally couldn’t buy enough. But, what we did get our hands on landed at our warehouse tasting as great as we remember. This one has a great balance between delicate and traditional with notes of Nougat, Dark Chocolate, Stonefruit, and a finish like Sweet Tea with Lemon.

Delicious Coffee

This is a great option for a city+ roast. Retains some sweetness, with chocolates finish.

Pretty decent Colombian

I roasted to C+ and rested 24 hours. While hot, I thought the lemon-like acidity felt a bit sharp, and I don’t taste nougat at all. It definitely isn’t a fruity Colombian, but I did catch some drying walnut on the finish, so it did show some clear origin flavors. Perhaps it needs to be a bit darker or rested longer to pull out all the flavors Bodhi exudes over? What was a surprise to me was that I liked it a LOT when it cooled. Somehow the acidity and sweetness pulled into line and I got a glimpse of why the Bodhi gang like this so much. The rest of this batch is going for cold brew. Maybe Ill revisit my review after I roast the next batch a shade darker to Full City.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
