Colombia Finca San Jose
Location: Jackson, Mississippi
Reviewed: May 2016
Price: $15.25/12 ounces
Roast (Agtron): (56/80)
Origin: Pitalito, San Agustin growing region, Huila Department, southern Colombia
OVERALL RATING: 92
Notes: Pitalito is a highly respected growing area east of the Andes in the southern Colombian Department of Huila. Produced by Don Fauder Alvarez entirely of the Caturra variety of Arabica. Alvarez modifies the typical wet-processing method by de-pulping and fermenting the coffee without water for around 12 hours, then adding water to the tank to slow down or “reset” the fermentation before drying the coffee. BeanFruit Coffee Coffee Company is a small coffee-roasting company located in the Jackson, Mississippi area, founded on a desire to provide fresh-roasted coffee to the Jackson area and educate local consumers about great-tasting coffee.

Blind assessment: Deeply sweet-savory. Roasted cacao nib, sage, ripe kiwi, magnolia, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweet, juicy acidity; buoyant, syrupy mouthfeel. The crisp, gently drying finish centers around roasted cacao nib and hazelnut.
The bottom line: A big Colombia that offers equal parts sweet and savory pleasure, enlivened throughout with nut and chocolate suggestions.
