New coffee from Edmund Alvera, Huila, Colombia
The acidity driven taste profile in coffee from Huila is something special, it even has the potential to make your gums contract. The Edmundo Alvera coffee, however, stood out on the Huila cupping table this year with it’s very Kenyan black currant like character, all while maintaining the body and com- plexity that is significant for a Huila coffee. Together, these characters of the coffee give us the pleasu- re of enjoying a brilliant yet elegant final cup. /Joanna Alm, Head Roaster
