Finca Colomba’s Tutto Giorno is a most excellent cup for those looking for a coffee that is just consistently GOOD. Baking spice and hazelnuts. It is clean and smooth. Just a tinge of subtle orange zest acidity to keep it interesting. The best way for us to put it is… well…
This is your Grandpa’s coffee. It doesn’t beg for your attention. It’s more about the conversation you’re having than what’s in your cup. It’s the coffee of memories. It’s friends having potluck breakfast. It plays well with your favorite French Vanilla creamer that your coffee snob friends give you so much crap about. Yet it’s bold–the same coffee mom and dad drink black every morning. This is your no-fluff (except in the body), get-stuff-done beverage. You’ll love it fresh, sitting out for a bit, or re-warmed in the microwave after you forgot to bring it with you to work, but need a little pick-me-up before supper…
… Okay maybe don’t drink it after the delicious fruit acids have broken down into volatile, stomach-churning acids, but you get the point.
We’ve worked with Mario Valiente (aka Don Cigarillo) for several years now. His dedication to his work has proven itself year after year. He may be an “old dog”, but he’s constantly experimenting with new tricks. In collaboration with our green buyer, the Valiente estate is consistently pushing to transfer more delicious fruit sugar and acidity from the coffee cherry to the finished product. Keep an eye out from anything coming out of his El Salvador coffee estate, Cafe Colomba.
