Colombia - Hacienda El Jardin Microlot

Microlot, Hand-picked, Father and Son Producer

Sweet, Chocolate, Vanilla, Caramel, Good Body

This is a very special Microlot Coffee from producers Elmer and Juan Felipe Restrepo.

Their farm, Hacienda El Jardin, spans 271 acres across a set of hills and valleys ranging from 5,000 to 6,000 feet in elevation.
It employs 12 full time employees that handle upkeep as well as assist in the hand picking cherry harvest and coffee drying procedures.

General Flavor Observations
Colombia - Hacienda El Jardin Microlot

This Hacienda El Jardin Microlot is an exceptional Colombian offering!
There are notes of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and dried fruits in the profile, with a wonderfully juicy mouth-feel and sweetness.
The body is medium, with a smooth roundness, exceptional balance and a lingering, fruity finish.

This is truly a high quality Colombian coffee, and one not to miss!

Roast Level Profile Notes
Colombia - Hacienda El Jardin Microlot

The sweet, fruity complexity, round body, and soft acidity of this wonderful Colombian coffee, will be best realized at a Full City roast.
However, each roast level will provide unique differences to the profile, so don't hesitate to experiment.

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast will alter the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

Looking for a brighter cup with plenty of complexity and a fruit forward profile, then our City roast is a great choice.
As with most City roasts, you will find a milder body and snappier acidity. Notes of dried fruits, cocoa nibs, and vanilla in the cup.
A very nice choice.

Full City Roast (medium roast) - Preferred

I found Full City to be the best balance all around, presenting a smooth cup with notes of milk chocolate and caramel.
The vanilla sweetness of the profile peaks into notes of red apple or perhaps banana.
The finish is long, juicy, and sweet, with a soft and pleasant brightness.
Wonderful!

Full City (+) Roast

This roast level will focus the fruit into deeper tones and provide a more 'velvety' cup.
The mouth-feel will be quite silky, the body more full, and the finish will be smooth and taper quickly.
The excellent sweetness of the profile becomes more like toffee, with the fruit tones becoming more like that of dark cherry.
Velvety!

Vienna Roast

This roast has that solid dark roast quality represented by bittersweet chocolate and toffee, yet remains quite smooth.
The sweet fruit tones remain but are a bit more muted.
This would be a good roast profile to choose if paring with a sweet dessert or following a rich meal.

French Roast

Not recommended.

Additional Information
Colombia - Hacienda El Jardin Microlot

This microlot coffee is handpicked and fermented for up to 48 hours before being laid in thin layers in solar dryers for roughly five days, and carefully raked for uniformity before being finished in a temperature controlled vertical mechanical dryer.

The region is composed of a mineral rich volcanic soil and a mix of igneous and metamorphic rocks from previous eruptions of the Nevado del Ruiz Volcano.
With an ideal elevation, soil composition and ample annual rainfall, Hacienda El Jardin is well suited for the production of quality arabica coffee.

Elmer and Juan Felipe Restrepo. For the last 30 years, Elmer and Juan Felipe Restrepo have overseen an impressive seed to cup operation, which also includes the founding of the Invercafe coffee mill and factory.

Wow!
Just arrived today and had to brew an afternoon pick-me-up. This Columbian is fantastic! At Full City, I can see it as an easy drinking, all-day type. I do not typically purchase Columbian, but the "honey" sold me, and it is definitely noticeable. Thanks for bringing it to Storehouse !

Outstanding and Unique
This is one of the most unique Colombian coffees I've tried, and I love it. The mouth feel is silky, with subtle sweetness and hints of fruit and chocolate, plus other flavors that I haven't tasted before in coffee from this part of the world. Mellow, smooth. I went with the recommended Full City roast, and it's perfect.
