Harken Coffee - Hugo Melo, Colombia
This is the 2021 Harvest from Hugo Melo, who we have committed to buying regularly from. Last year we purchased his entire lot, and we did the same this time as well. While much of his coffee was used as part of a "regional blend," this Caturra varietal was sold separately and we snatched it up.
This year his coffee is tasting very Kenyan-esque in that it is full bodied and has lots of red fruit sweetness but also a really nice spiciness to it. It reminds us of stewed plums, baked red delicious apples and has a nice strawberry sweetness in the finish.
