LULO Coffee - Finca Alcatraz Washed Caturra


The Impression 

Orange Marmelade / Spiced Panela / Creamy Papaya / Cacao  / Velvety / Subtle Florality 

Notes of orange marmalade and papaya give this coffee depth, while the creamy medium body balances out the cup with a rich sweetness filled with panel and cacao. Spiced notes of clove and nutmeg appear especially when prepared as espresso. When brewed as filter, a black tea-like characteristic that works exceptionally well with the orange acidity. Overall, quite a balanced and nuanced cup, yet still quite approachable.
