Our newest Narino Reserve is here! This is another outstanding coffee from the folks at La Minita that comes from Narino, the southernmost district of Colombia. This is truly a quality coffee.

This coffee is new to La Minita as it is prepared in honor of Don Enrique Vasquez. He was the patriarch of their partners out of Nariño. La Minita found a coffee that encompassed all of the special qualities of Nariño and prepared to their exacting standards.They supervise 100% of the production that leaves a coffee with creamy silkiness, wonderful acidity and a complex cocoa flavors. Truly a special coffee.

Earthy notes, first impression is a heavy body and low acidity. The flavor of this year's crop is nutty (Brazil, almond) with notes of floral breezes.
A sparkling, clean, lemon-orange brightness with chocolate and nutty overtones that carry through to the long, complex finish.
Brilliant acidity, a medium body, and sweet flavors of orange citrus, caramelized sugar, and fine chocolate. It is impeccably balanced with a long, satisfying finish

Quite different than most Columbian that I have roasted. Very subtle nutty taste with chocolate and fruit tones. A great bean in my opinion. Not chewy at all with a city plus roast on a behmor 1600+. I have enjoyed it in the morning and late into the eve. If you love the Columbian bean I urge you to try it out. Definitely one of my new favorites.

I bought 3lbs of this and 3lbs of Costa Rica La Monolia Tres Rios. Similar profiles to that of Kona which I can't afford. Though both are great, I think I like this slightly more. As a matter of fact, I am currently enjoying a cup as I write this! It has a moderate taste, very smooth, with a slight lingering aftertaste. Happy, happy!

Now, I know the truth.... No more fake ground up or tampered with so-called roasted coffee beans... Thusly, Folgers, Maxwell House, StarBucks, Dunkin Doughnut, or commercial branded coffee beans are not for me! The Coffee Bean Corral, sells real coffee beans! The quality, flavor, and content yet intact; the quality of the coffee beans provide both exhilaration and excellence! The company's service too, was excellent being that my order was both prepared and delivered promptly! I'm delighted regarding the outcome of this purchase and too, will return to further patronize this company's rich tasty coffee beans. And btw, the "Colombia Don Enrique Reserve Excelso: is fabulous! Coffee Bean Corral, thanks for delivering a quality product expeditiously!

We've been thoroughly enjoying the wonderful world of home roasting. Particularly the various Ethiopian offerings - Yergacheffe being our favorite. But we have dabbled in quite a variety of beans from all over the world. Then pops up this offering and I figured..."why not?" I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the flavors of good old Columbian beans and we were both quite surprised how very tasty these are - at full city. As I type this I am toasting a blend of Queen City Harrar with these. Two parys Harrar to one part of these. Last week I did a three way blend of these, yergacheffe natural and some of the 18 rabbit Honduran that I have been saving. Very interesting!
