Lulo - Finca El Recreo 250g
Roast Level: Medium Light
Green Apple/ Almond/ Crushable
This delightful cup tastes like a caramel apple coated in nuts. Its rich sweetness and balanced acidity make it clean and bright while being absolutely approachable. But more than approachable, perhaps a better word this coffee is crushable. Like hard-to-wait-for-it-to-cool crushable. Prepared as espresso, it's buttery, balanced, and full of body. Seriously, it's just a treat.
This is the first coffee from Finca El Recreo for LULO, and they are the first ones to get to share it outside of Colombia. Elio and Mercedes are new to the specialty market and have come a long way, working closely with their son, Rony, to improve their post-harvest processing and cup score. Making a few key changes in the drying and storing phases produced this gem.
