Blind Assessment: Crisply balanced with a shifting, tight-knit complexity. Flowers, nut, fir, and a dark chocolaty fruit in aroma and cup. The flowers and chocolate carry long into the finish. Gentle acidity, silkily smooth mouthfeel.
Notes: Huila is probably the most admired of Colombia coffee growing regions; this small lot was grown by farmer Julio Medina and is made up of the Caturra variety of Arabica. Coava is a Portland based coffee roaster that aims to provide quality coffee and the knowledge needed to properly brew that coffee.

Who Should Drink It: A classic Latin American coffee that should please those who avoid intense acidity but enjoy balanced, quiet complexity.
