Everything you want to know
The coffees that grow on the mountain ranges of the region are called "Altura" coffees, since they grow at high altitudes.
For this evaluation, the coffee was extracted into espresso at 93 °C with an extraction of 25 ml in 26 seconds. The degassing of the coffee took 48 hours. The crema has a hazelnut color with beautiful stripes and the body is richer than what a Central American washed coffee might usually be. The aromas are of vanilla and tobacco, with delicate notes of cocoa. The body is light but pleasant. A sweet cup with an acidic note.
