Colombia Finca Monte Verde, Gildardo Gutierrez
|Roaster Location:||San Francisco, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Herrera, Tolima Department, west-central Colombia.|
|Est. Price:||$19.50/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||April 2014|
This deeply nuanced coffee requires patience to fully engage its originality and distinction. Sweet-savory in structure with honey, lilac, roasted cacao nib and ripe peach in aroma and cup. Plump, juicy acidity; an almost honeyish viscosity in the mouthfeel. Lilac, honey and cacao nib in particular carry into a long, flavor-saturated finish.
This exceptional coffee is only available in-store at Sightglass Coffee in San Francisco. Produced by farmer Gildardo Gutierrez, who was gifted the farm by his father as a wedding present. Sightglass Coffee is a small-batch sibling-owned coffee company with two roasteries located in San Francisco. Sightglass works tirelessly at its craft to perfect and deliver excellence in coffee.
