We wanted to bring out more of the sweetness of one of our staff favourites, the Yellow Cat. We kept a lot of its bright fruit taste but in a very balanced roast that pulls a really sweet and vibrant shot (and also is great in a drip or French press).
During our cupping of this fun espresso, we all settled on the same tasting note, of a sweet lemon dessert (without any bitterness). So like a lemon pound cake or meringue. It's a lot of fun, whichever way you brew it.
This Yellow Caturra variety comes to us from one of the best coffee growing regions in the world, grown by farmers with passion and who we are honoured to get to work so closely with.
The first generation of the Ortega family were pioneers of coffee production in the village of San Agustin. Three generations later, Esnaider Ortega-Gomez, and his grandfather Don Olgar Ortega-Bolaños, are now owners of the farm Villa Maria and responsible for this JUICY delight that has more body than a blue whale!
