raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption

We have raved about Bucaramanga coffees for some time now. And for a good reason. The variety of the crops is clearly differentiated, and they are excellent across the board.

The Santander Department is known for its natural, shade-grown coffees cultivated throughout the forests, where the rich volcanic soils, idyllic microclimates and average temps (68-71°F) are perfect for growing specialty grade arabica. The Bucaramanga El Gato is a true 17/18 screen Colombia Supremo green coffee, handpicked, washed and milled by the Northeastern Colombian Coffee Cooperative (Cooperativa Cafetera Del Nororiente Colombiano). In the cup it shines with a nice, medium body with a slightly creamy mouth feel, bold acidity, and notes of sweet orange, slight nutty almond and sweet vanilla on the finish.

This coffee is a little more delicate than other Colombians, so be careful not to burn it.

Cupping Notes: Good medium body with slightly creamy mouth feel, bold acidity, notes of sweet orange, slight nutty almond and sweet vanilla finish.

One of the best Columbian beans I have ever tasted, especially when roasted to an oily dark color--really brings out the smooth chocolate flavor.

I love almost every Colombian I've tried and this El Gato is as good as any ever have been! My Hive roaster brought out some nutty, almond notes and it has a very nice body and a pleasing aftertaste. This is a "special" bean in my book.

Taste was good, but inconsistency with quality of beans was disappointing, finding broken beans and even a piece or two of rocks. The Tanzania Peabury however was excellent.

Roasted to full city was pretty unremarkable in flavor and body, would not buy it again. Probably at lighter roasts might show more character, but I do not like light roast. At darker roasts I suspect it would probably lose any character. As as note to other reviewers, this coffee is from Colombia, therefore it's Colombian coffee, not Columbian.

I'm a Colombia fan and this was pretty good. I took the first roast to 2nd crack and that was too far for me. Next batch, roast went to medium and I liked it much better. It roasts fast, so keep an eye on it.

For a bold cup, this is my co-fav with the Indian Myzore Nuggets. Agree with above that need to take care not to burn. Love this Columbian

This to me is the classic taste I am looking for. I've tried several types and while all are good, if someone told me I could only drink one type for the rest of my years this would be my pick. Roasted just into the second crack for about 10-15 seconds being careful not to burn. Beans were a nice even dark brown and at first I thought I should have gone further... but no.. it turned out to be a perfect brew. I'm ordering more today. Charles, This is my wife's favorite so we will always have it in stock! Thanks for your business! John

Awesome bean right here. I roasted this over open flame just after the first crack so fairly light and let me just say - make this as a Cuban and it’ll be the best Cuban you’ve ever had. It’s already a well balanced bean - not too bright, just heavy enough and a little sweet on the palette and extracting it with the brown sugar makes an amazing Cuban.

I am a "newbie" at coffee roasting and up until this one, I was wandering around "green coffee bean land" (pre-Coffee Bean Corral) fairly disappointed. This was the one that changed all that. This is a GREAT cup of coffee and will remain a staple for me while I do some more experimenting. Full bodied, chocolaty and slightly sweet.

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Home Coffee Roasting...Coffee Bean Corral style. Now that you have a good "everyday coffee", the fun begins (experimenting with other coffees) whenever you feel the urge. Thanks,
Russ
