Blind Assessment: Deep, pungent, layered. Dark chocolate, molasses, narcissus-like flowers, peach, honeydew melon in aroma and cup. Round, gently rich acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flowers and chocolate in particular carry into a long, sweet-toned, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: San Agustín is one of the most admired of Colombia coffee-growing regions. Chromatic prides itself in doing everything in-house and meticulously, from printing its attractive bags to modifying equipment to sourcing and roasting its exceptionally fine coffees.
