This Bolivian bean is farmed by the Correo community in Apolo, and is made up of only a few farmers. Don Ricardo, and his family lead the coffee growing operation in Correo. In this community, the farmers make and keep their own money, as opposed to living communally like other Apolo communities. Don Ricardo and his family had some of the highest scoring coffee in all of Apolo, and were some of the first to grow in this entire region. This region has high elevation with hot days and cool nights. This allows the walls of the coffee seed to stabilize and lock in flavor, sweetness, and acidity as the fruit matures.

Cupping notes: Chocolate aromas that carry into the flavor, with mild notes of clean citrus. Heavy body, with a tangerine acidity and a sweet caramel finish.

This is the first bean I tried in my sr800. The extension tube hasn't shown yet, so I ran the 800 straight outta the box. Ran it to about a minute past 1st crack and left it on cool cycle for 4 minutes. Roughly 10-12 minutes total but I was scrambling to make sure I was doing everything "right" so I'm not totally sure. After 72 hours: Interesting! The citrus shines through but it's slightly muted by the AMAZING body and mouthfeel. It finishes a bit chocolatey and sorta like raisins... and incredibly smoothly. Surprised me how smooth. Going to try the Apolo a bit darker to see what happens to those interesting citrus notes. I'm guessing more of the earthy, chocolate will shine through. Side note; I love Bolivian coffee... so I'm partial. Awesome bean to start with! Super impressed with the sr800, even without the extension tube.
