Trick or treat? Well, treat yourself to these Central and South American coffees! You better believe Dracula will be sucking down both coffees this Halloween. Swamp Thing said he loves the difference with the roast profile between these two coffees. They both are very sweet, but while one has a deep chocolate richness, the other has a raw sugar sweetness. Don't ask the Wolfman though, he likes to eat the coffee raw.
Colombia Timana Principales Lotes City+
Unrefined sugar, candy apple sweetness, and raw honey right up front. Fresh and clean acidity and a juicy finish. Frankenstein's Monster and The Mummy both agree that this Colombia shines bright at a City+ roast.
Nicaragua Dipilto Finca La Laguna Full City
Bakers Chocolate, Anise, hazelnut and toasty Cinnamon. There is even a touch of acidity that hits the back of the mouth at the finish. This Full City roast also comes with lots of body and layers of cocoa.
*Blending these two coffees work very nicely too. I would recommend 1 part Nicaragua Dipilto Finca La Laguna and 3 parts Colombia Timana Principales Lotes. But, try a few other combos and see what you think!
Just in case you would like to check out the green coffee offering of these two:
