Exclusive micro-lot to Dark Woods Coffee.
This micro-lot is super-juicy and bright drunk as a black filter coffee where it’s subtle floral notes and sparkling pink grapefruit acidity are allowed to shine, unimpeded by milk. Though high levels of acidity make this a difficult coffee to balance as espresso, drunk long there is a molasses and marzipan sweetness and a subtle hint of elderflower to match the citrus notes in this deceptively complex coffee.
“One of the most interesting developments to happen in Ecuadoran soil is the appearance of a new cultivar, called Sidra. A cross between a Bourbon and a Typica, these coffees can express a very unique fruity, floral characteristics. When grown at higher altitudes and processed meticulously, these coffees stand out on the cupping table, and have the potential to bring Ecuador into the spotlight as a specialty-producing country.”
