  • Nutty, sesame, caramel, kettle corn.
  • This is our first time purchasing robusta. The coffee is fairly average density and moisture content. We recommend roasting this coffee dark. There is absolutely no acidity in the cup with most notes being nutty and caramel. Roasting dark will develop a pleasant sweetness with a clean finish.

Mario Valiente implements multiple processing methods at the wet mill including carbonic macerated and anaerobic fermented naturals, traditional naturals, honey, fully washed, semi-washed and more. Each process is tasted and stored according to the cupping result. The farm permanently employs 80 people and up to 210 people from nearby towns during the picking season. Aware of the need in the surrounding communities, Finca Colomba supports schools in the area, hosts medical conferences to provide accessible healthcare and distributes toys to children during the Christmas season.

Robusta as a single origin?

I was scared to taste this one because I have never tasted or roasted a robusta before. I have heard about how much caffeine robusta has and the nice mouth feel in shots of espresso. I have heard of people saying it can be good if taken care of and treated well. Well I am pleased to say that this robusta was quite pleasant to taste. It didn't smell the best roasting though.

Very nutty, sweet, caramel, low acidity, medium body. Notes on website accurate, although I didn't get any kettle corn. You could drink this black no problem.

All flavors very muted. No acidity. Heavier body. I went darker with this roast. You could drink it with cream and sugar. Tasted like starbucks. Or you could blend it in with any darker roasted coffee.
