Bright with citric acidity taken to a medium roast giving a wonderful fruity sweetness in your cup.
Colombia has been producing great coffee since the early part of the 19th century and their expertise shines through. These beans are grown by smallholder farms, near Medellín in the Antioquia Province. A stunningly sweet, fruity Colombian with bright, citric acidity.
Excelso is a Colombian coffee size grading of the beans, ‘EP’ stands for ‘European Preparation’ which sets a precedent both for the screen size of the bean (typically 15 and above), and the way in which the coffee is hand-sorted. Multiple smallholder farms pick and process their own coffee, using individually-owned wet mills, before drying the washed beans in the sun.
This is my first foray into fresh coffee, and I was not disappointed! It has quickly become my go to coffee, it is smooth, full of flavour, and just a very pleasant drinking experience. Very reasonably priced too!
Great coffee as always from tugboat
Mellow - with rich and complicated flavours. A little more darkness in the roast and I’d have given it a 5.
Love its smooth rich flavour. The one the others have to beat.
All are good but this is the best of the single estate coffees I've had off Tugboat so far. Smooth all around taste with a slight quirky edge. I still think the Custom Blend is best however. It sets the bar very high.
