The Impression

Pineappple / Floral / Glowing 

Fantastically floral and tremendously tropical, this coffee is a clean and bright take on modern fermentation processes. Pineapple, mango, and strawberry sweetness sit atop a creamy yet buzzing acidity, and its light body brings a tea-like quality to mind as it cools. 

 

Roast Level 

Medium-light

 

Story 

LULO met the team at Proyecto Renacer (Project Rebirth) at their café last winter. They are the processing specialists behind La Sierra’s coffees and serve these same coffees in their beautiful shop in Medellin’s Laureles neighborhood. They have been working diligently to bring further representation to La Sierra producers, helping change the unfortunate and now-outdated reputation that the neighborhood had gained in previous years of intense conflict. 

 

The Brew 

Pour-Over (V60) 

Ratio: 1:17 

Grind: Medium-Fine 

Time ~3:30 

Notes: This cup continues to glow with florals and fruit into a longer extraction with a higher ratio. With quicker brews, the pineapple (malic) acidity really shines, whereas longer ones highlight the bouquet of flowers in the background.
