South Slope Coffee selected a beautiful micro-lot grown in

A beautiful micro-lot grown in Finca Idealista’s Rainforest all shade grown and a single varietal consisting of 100% Caturra. The smell right after brewing is just phenomenal, a honey like sweetness fills the air. Nice medium body with a straight up cherry taste and sweetness; as the coffee cools notes of pear and cantaloupe appear. Very nicely balanced coffee overall. It is surely pleasing. And as you drink this magnificent cup you can rest assured that the farmers that picked and processed this coffee are being taken care of and the environment surrounding this farm as well

Finca Idealista sits on a mountaintop that borders a nature reserve, whose trees act as a natural air conditioner for its many varieties of award-winning coffee beans. This cool microclimate lengthens the coffee cherry maturity process, allowing beans more time to absorb natural sugars and other attributes that contribute to a rounded cup profile.Finca Idealista workers receive the highest wages around. Local pickers are trained to pick only the reddest cherries so that the farm’s crop reaches its full potential and highest level of sweetness. Extraordinary care is taken, both during wet and dry processing, to inspect all beans and ensure that only the finest, ripest coffee is exported. In addition to washed coffee, the farm has invested in special infrastructure to increase production of natural and honey process coffee, with outstanding cupping results. In addition to its focus on quality, Finca Idealista, through its partner social enterprise Gold Mountain Coffee Growers, supports the growth and development of the community through educational supplies and running water for schools, scholarships and medical supplies, free computing classes for girls, and new initiatives based on needs assessment. Gold Mountain Coffee Growers won the SCAE Sustainability Award for its economic and environmental achievements.

    Smooth mellow brew. I am not great at picking out coffee notes, thus I am not going to pretend to do so. Having said that I do what I like and I like this coffee. It makes for a great brew. It’s mellow, smooth and has a great taste on the back end. I used a pour over method to brew this cup. 33 grams coffee and 546 grams filtered water. If you are considering this purchase, I would give it a shot. Just a view from the cheap seats.

    This is one of my favorite roasters on Roaster’s Marketplace. This is a very unique coffee. I normally see the tasting notes and have a laugh when i see things like cherries, red grape and pear… but when i tried this I have to say it is all there and a great mid day cup of coffee with some bright flavors I will order again and again.
