Colombia Tolima Ibague China Alta - This is from small-farm selections in the Tolima department of Colombia. Most of the lots are from Herrera and Rioblanco areas, a remote zone that is fairly difficult to access compared to other coffee areas. Part of the issue is that Tolima was one of the last active FARC areas where the conflict between the government, paramilitary and FARC continued. Sadly is is always the farmers who are held to the land who suffer. Still, we work the through local Cooperative called Asoceas to access their fantastic coffees, and have designated this blend as “Dos Payasos de Tolima”. As you might guess, payaso means clown. Not to say there is any nonsense to this lot; it’s fantastic! The aromatics here are very complex and sweet. These are coffees that are really nice in the cup, but don’t make the high standard for our Tolima farm-specific micro-lots. They are assembled into Dos Payasos, aiming for brightness, balanced by complex deeper-toned flavors. The dry fragrance has hibiscus floral hints, almond milk, some red apple and flame grape. Adding the hot water, the fruit has a slight winey aspect, warming spice, fig, grape and raisin. There is a nice caramelized sugar whiff on the break, a bit like panela sugar. The lighter roasts have golden raisin fruit sweetness and apple-like brightness. The finish has a pleasant tart, drying quality, a bit like apple skins. There’s dashes of spiciness too; cinnamon stick, clove. Caramel and spice linger as the cup cools, as well as orange spice tea. The body isn’t heavy, but syrupy in mouthfeel to balance out the brighter aspects of the cup. Cupping credit: Tom Owen. Processing: Wet-Process Style; Varietal: Caturra, Typica; Appearance: 17-18 screen. (15 oz. bag)
