Cherry / Chocolate / Comforting
Simply complex in the best of ways, this coffee is meant to be approachable while still having plenty of nuances to explore. Spiced red fruits expertly lean into a rich chocolate body, complimented by both a subtle acidity and a nuttiness that rounds everything off. Balance is the theme here, as it takes well to milk while shining on its own.
Ervin Liz Andela and his family have been supporting LULO since day one. They are members of the Nasa Indigenous community, and they have a single-hectare farm in Tierradentro, Cauca. Ervin’s parents manage their beautiful farm, perched atop a mountain ridge at 1850masl in the Andes, while he represents them in the sale of both green and roasted coffee. The levels of care, passion, and dedication in this family operation are just bonkers, truly felt in every cup.
Notes: Definitely a forgiving coffee, increase the ratio a bit to explore some of the nuanced citrus flavors that bring oranges to mind when paired with milk.
