Roaster notes: "We are super excited to be back roasting our family coffee, this is always an emotional one where the purpose of setting up Carnival Coffee Roasters comes full circle. A balanced, soft coffee; a great all rounder that works well as a balanced, smooth, sweet filter / pour over with bright acidity, strawberry fizz and sweetness. Or brew it as a complex, rich espresso, expect orange acidity, strawberries. When married with Milk this coffee comes into it's own as a delicious white toblerone in your cup".
Cafe Familia coffee is grown on the family mountain side where my Parents, Aunties, and Uncles still live today. Won in a very lucky game of cards by my Grandad many years ago. My mother is the second born and inherited the second highest piece of land which is an ideal height for growing coffee., my Auntie and Uncle live at the top of the Mountain. The second release is from slightly higher up on the farm. The coffee plants are surrounded by waterfalls, orange and bananas groves. After the ripest cherries are picked, they are washed and laid out to dry on the open beds overlooking the city of Medellin. The beans are carefully monitored to reach 11% moisture before they are able to leave the farm and be exported to the UK.
With everything happening in Colombia at the moment, we are so lucky to have a little piece of home arrive with us in the UK. We look forward to the day when we can visit our family again but whilst we can't we will drink to them every day with a cup of this awesome coffee.
