Colombia Los Cauchos
San Augustino Forest, Huila region
Acid: Medium High
Texture: Sweetened Gingerbeer and cola
Flavor Profile: classic “Diner Coffee” profile. Slightly spicy, very sweet and texturally rooty, with big body and good balance. Almost cherry cola-like, if the cherry wasn’t too over the top. The textural body is similar to Gingerbeer without being overly barky or spicy. Caramel flavors carry through a fairly juicy finish.
Noteworthy: San Augustino forest resides at 1730 to 2000 meters in the Huila region. Designated as a World Heritage Site due to the presence of Pre-Colombian sites and artifacts. Los Cauchos features Caturra and Colombia cultivars, is 100% washed, fully patio sun dried and carries both Rain Forest Alliance and C.A.F.E. Practices certifications.
