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.

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!
