Tasting Notes: Brown Sugar, Tropical Fruit, Herbaceous


Giovanny’s coffee is a great example of Tolima’s medium-high acidity, round body, and fresh, fruity flavors. This coffee has super sweet aromatics - think banana bread, stone fruit, panela - turning into milk chocolate and brown sugar on the palate. It has the lingering acidity of pineapple and orange. That brightness is tempered by mild nuttiness, its sugar sweetness by a gentle herbaceousness - it’s a coffee that tastes fresh and clean for the whole cup. Or carafe… as we seem to be drinking this by the gallon. 

FWIW: Giovanny’s practices at Bella Horizonte are 100% organic and USDA certified. Our roastery is not, however, so you won't see fancy cert stickers on these bags.
