Whilst working on what the new, new is, we are busily trying to make our coffee lives more interesting. I think that “we” have all spent more time reflecting into our tea and coffee cups and gin, beer, and wine glasses over the last few months than ever before. This has been the survival key to many of us, alongside sourdough, vegetable gardening, and screaming into pillows (that one was for a friend).
This week, we decided that it was time we started rolling out new crop coffees. It might seem mad with the stock levels that we have, however life goes on.
Our first coffee to share is La Colina, almost in Antigua. That’s another story for another day.
In previous seasons this has been the Guatemalan coffee version of a fruit cake, and this season, the acidity is tighter and brighter. Initially, I wasn’t quite sure what to do until I took it home for a few days. I don’t know about you, but when you have no big expectations from a coffee the best things can happen. You drink a cup of coffee, stop. Then you just top up again. I just found that Colina has become the easiest drinking coffee there is. No Rockstar maceration (don’t get me started) just tasty honest super quaffable coffee.
Next week, if all goes well, we should have something else rather exciting for you….
Happy weekend all.
