NOTES: DELICATE FLORALS, COMPLEX CITRUS, RED GRAPE
It isn't often that you truly find a producer whose coffee you love every time you blind taste them. On three separate times, while cupping with the Osito team in Garzon, Huila, Colombia; Kyle picked out this producer's coffee as his highest scoring personal favorite. All three of these coffees happened to be from one producer, Jose Martinez. It was no surprise that all three were mostly Pink Bourbon varieties which is one of Kyle's favorites. These coffees are bright, clean, fruity and floral.
Jose Martinez is a special producer whose care and attention to detail is clear. His coffees are vibrant expressions of the intermarriage of excellent processing coming alongside complex varieties. We are happy to be able to share a small portion of Jose's work with you. Jose has a long standing relationship with Phil & Sebastian in Calgary, Canada; but these lots fell outside of that relationship and Kyle was more than happy to take advantage of the timing, buying all three lots on site in Colombia.
We combined two of those lots for one release and held the highest scoring lot for a special release as well. We hope to continue this relationship and cannot wait to meet Jose in person.
