Colombia Huila Excelso EP


Regular Price $5.50 / lb
Starting at $4.00 / lb
As low as $3.00 / lb

Huila is also an Excelso coffee bean with a screen size of 15-16. While this coffee bean is a classic Colombian, it is slightly lighter-bodied when compared to the Bucaramanga (heavier) and the Popayan (heaviest). Expect chocolate flowers dancing on your taste buds!

This variety has been described as "a Kenyan that moved to Colombia," having great balance, and yet is rich, nutty and sweet; the longer it sat in the cup the sweeter it got. Milder and lighter than the other Colombians, it is a nice cup of coffee for watching the sun go down, or with a fine, light dessert after dinner. This coffee has matured since the last cupping, several years ago. The floral notes are more pronounced and the sweetness has mellowed. There is an "oak aged" quality comparable to the balance found in whiskeys and wines with that label. Enjoy.

Try before you stock up with a 1/2 pound sample!

A sparkling, clean, lemon-orange brightness with chocolate and nutty overtones that carry through to the long, complex finish.
Excellent body, deep, rich. complex and bright. Fruity (currants and plums) overtones with a nice chocolate background, just a hint of earthiness and a long, satisfying finish.
From Rancho San Francisco - buttery consistency, chocolate and floral notes carry through to the nice long finish, joined by a hint of nuts.

When I read the description "a Kenyan that moved to Columbia" I was doubtful....but when I tasted these beans, that is exactly the description that came to mind! Muted chocolate notes followed by Earl Grey/jasmine notes. The more the coffee cools, the more it resembles a Kenyan ex-pat living in Columbia. A great marriage of two of my favorite regions! A really tasty and unique coffee.
