  • Fragrance of blackberry, red currant aroma, big flavors of blackberry and cherry, aftertaste of honey and pastry crust, medium lime acidity with a heavy body and syrupy mouthfeel.
  • This coffee offers big and juicy fruit flavors with a mild citrus acidity. Roasting at the darker end of a light roast will complement these fruit notes without muting the balanced acidity too much. Roasting medium to medium-dark will result in more cooked-fruit notes with a muted acidity and very syrupy body.

In 1949, Adolfo McEntee inherited two properties from his family in the Cordillera de Llamatepec, on the slopes of the Santa Ana Volcano. At this time, Don Adolfo began planting Bourbon coffee trees at Finca Colomba and Finca San Francisco.

After having been kidnapped twice during the civil war throughout the country, José Adolfo emigrated to Miami with his son and left the management of the farm to Mario Valiente, owner of Finca Calera. In 2014, Mario Valiente built Colomba’s dry mill so the farm has direct control over every step of the process from farm to export. Great care is taken preparing each coffee for exporting and 10 women, who are heads of their households, oversee the final quality check through manual sorting.

So flavorful

I roasted this light and then at a darker end of medium. As a light roast it is bright, flavorful, and heavy body. I immediately was in love with this bean. As medium dark, the flavors were muted. Personally, I prefer the light roast but can see people really enjoying it as a medium, medium dark. A versatile bean for various roasting preferences and palates. A few weeks later and it is still producing a great cup. While I intend to offer it as single origin, I plan to experiment on a blend with this bean - excited to try the results.

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback! We love working with the Valiente family and their natural-processed coffees are consistently solid.
