When it comes to methods of making a coffee, there is so many ways to mention but one thats often gets overlooked in the specialty coffee world. Nespresso®. the method itself shouldn't be overlooked at all. At the end of the day, its quick, easy, clean and tidy and can make a tasty cup of Joe.
We've spent the last few months getting our pods just right and we're happy to say they make a great cup. Both the capsules and the lids are fully compostable and the packaging is fully recycleable. We decided to use our Natural Finca Las Delicias from Colombia in our first run of Nespresso pods and it does not dissappoint!
This coffee was produced by Yesid Costañeda at a farm known as Finca Las Delicias. I'm sure you can guess where the farm got its name from - and it is a rightly deserved title too. Yesid is not one to shy away from a challenge when it comes to producing quality coffee. His farm is located on a remote mountainside at 2000 masl. Living at this altitude has its challenges, but the resulting quality from the coffee produced is some of the most exceptional in Colombia. For context, most Colombian farms are between 1200 and 1800 masl. This high altitude, combined with Yesid's expertise, and rich volcanic soil, has provided a near-perfect environment for specialty coffee to be grown.
In the cup, this coffee is an absolute fruitcake! The first thing you'll taste in this coffee is a concoction of stewed fruit - perfect for those winter mornings. Think dried cranberries, raisins and sultanas - get the picture? That slowly gives way to this big boozy body that's got a sweet red wine note to it. Lastly, on the finish, there is just a lingering of tropical fruit, not enough to make this coffee a tropical fruit bomb, but enough to make you think "mmmm, that's interesting!". Enjoy this spectacular coffee in all brew methods
