Alicia Bursano’s coffee comes to us by way of our friends at Red Fox Coffee Merchants, who have been exploring this region and purchasing coffee here for the past decade. This is the first of two small Colombian offerings we will be featuring this Spring - farms here are historically quite small, only a few hectares in total. Red Fox has a deep relationship with a cooperative based in and around La Union, known as the FUDAM producers association. Alicia Bursano’s coffee is fully washed and wet fermented (submerged completely under water during fermentation) for a full 24 hours before being spread out to dry on raised beds. From the mouths of the foxes themselves: “These are quite possibly the most complex coffees we’ve sourced from the greater area. There is a purity to these coffees that make them different than the rest.” We couldn’t agree more, and all of our initial roasting and brewing tests have absolutely proved how complex and versatile this coffee is. At higher extractions, we’re finding Alicia Bursano’s coffee will exhibit a slighter thicker body, richer sweetness, and flavors similar to marzipan, chocolate, red grapes, red apple, and cola. Grinding a bit coarser reveals a brighter acidity and more delicate flavors - think pomegranate, cherry, orange blossom, white peach, sugary. The flavors are complex and vibrant, yet very balanced. This is a perfect example of why we love coffees from Colombia. Enjoy!
