CATURRA DE ALTURA, COLOMBIA. Hazelnuts, toffee & chocolate. Roasted for Espresso.
Caturra de Altura. Guatica, Colombia.
As an espresso roast we extend our roast development time to maintain sweetness but not too far as to introduce too much bitterness. This is a very nutty & toffee flavoured espresso, rich and full and with milk added has black forest gateau notes.
Available as a whole bean in both 250g or 1kg bags or ground for espresso or an aeropress in 250g bags using our Mahlkonig EK43 grinder for maximum extraction, sweetness and flavour.
