Our very first purchase from legendary producer, Astrid Medina Coffees/Buena Vista farm. Astrid Medina is the COE champion of Colombia North 2015. We chose these 2 hybrid cultivars amongst her beautiful coffees as we believe those hybrid/high-yield cultivars represent the Colombia terroir the best and some best Colombians are always hybrid ones, especially blends. We’ve already fallen in love with their coffees and decided to purchase more(amount and cultivars) next season. We really enjoyed each cultivar and blending a lot. In the cup, besides getting layered acidity, we’ve got some hidden character by blending them. Both Castillo and Colombia have a pleasantly tart acidity that is often found in best quality hybrid cultivars (especially Tabi, Castillo and Variedad Colombia) from Colombia. By blending them, we’ve got a tart yet soft acidity that accentuates its sweetness and texture which this farm is renowned for. In the cup, each cultivar’s flavor vibrantly remains. You can expect delicious pink grapefruit followed by the sweetness of molasses that leads the way to sweet macerated pineapple and hints of crisp kiwi and starfruit.
