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.
La Bastille is our regular coffee, but I am slowly working through the whole selection. This is quite a strong brew, lots of flavour and no bitterness.
Exemplary shopping experience, as always
Fabulous coffee! Very smooth and rich. Easy 5 stars from me.
This is a delightful coffee, smooth, rich and mellow. I have no hesitation in giving it 5 stars.
Have been buying coffee beans from tugboat for some time but this was my first experience of an online order. Can’t fault it! Super easy process and super fast delivery!
The coffee itself is exceptional, so smooth, really excellent flavour. Thankyou Tugboat!
Really loving this coffee. Very easy coffee to drink, with no after taste that shouldn't be there. Doesn't make you feel wired, just a really satisfying taste. Trick is getting the grind right, too coarse and it's a bit weak, too fine and it's a bit strong. But get it right, and boy and it's perfect !
