Colombia Nariño - Munoz

Fully Washed, Micro Lot, Single Family Farm

Honey, Tangerine, Wine, Sweet

This is another fantastic offering from the Nariño region in Colombia.
This is a very special 'Micro Lot' Coffee from producer Marco Antonio Munoz and is a part of the 'Nariño Micro Lot' program (You can read more about this extraordinary program in the 'Additional Information' section).

Nariño is one of the highest growing regions in Colombia and produces some truly complex and exquisite coffees.
Colombia's three ranges of Andean mountains converge in Nariño, presenting ideal altitudes and fertile soil for high grown Arabica production.
Thanks to the fearless spirit of the Nariño farmers, this small region has become a respected nucleus of coffee innovation.

This outstanding coffee is one that I am very excited to offer.

General Flavor Observations
Colombia Nariño - Munoz

This Micro Lot Colombia coffee offers a full-bodied cup with high sweetness, a round, smooth mouth-feel, and bright acidity.
With the first sip, notes of apricot are present, giving way to well-centered notes of honey and milk chocolate.
At the peak of the profile, the citrus notes of tangerine become apparent, then taper to a bright, winey finish.

A remarkable coffee that should not be missed, we present you: Colombia Narino - Marco Antonio Munoz!

Roast Level Profile Notes
Colombia Nariño - Munoz

The sweet, fruity complexity and enticing finish will be best realized at lighter roast levels.
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 very bright, Citrus forward cup with plenty of complexity, then our City roast is a great choice.
As with most City roasts, you will find a milder body and snappier acidity.
Notes of sweet honeysuckle, tangerine, cocoa nibs, and raspberry are well presented 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 full bodied, smooth cup with notes of milk chocolate and honey.
The honey sweetness is accompanied by notes of apricot, which gives way to tangerine, then a bright, winey finish.
While bright, the finish is somewhat soft and rolling with a pleasant, lingering aftertaste of stone fruit.

Full City (+) Roast

This roast level will present a more 'juicy' cup with notes of dark chocolate and a focus darker stone fruit.
The mouth-feel is silky; the body is deep; the finish is smooth and lingering.
The honey sweetness remains through a pointed and winey finish.

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

The Nariño “Producer Alliance” Program

The program is intended to identify exceptional coffees that could be traced back to their producers who would create regional blend profiles with complex flavors.
These flavors would be a step above the traditional coffees offered by large exporter houses.
The desire was to bring producers out of the commercial coffee trade and into the world of specialty coffee!

Empowering producers by presenting them with a challenge: "If you think your coffee is the best, bring it to us, and we'll partner with you to position it in the international market at the best possible premium."

If the producer's coffee meets the standard to qualify for the program, they are paid 20% above the local market.
Finally, if producer's coffee passes the mark for the regional profile and is positioned as a micro lot, the producer will receive a second premium that will average about a dollar more per pound on top of the initial premium.

5 Stars
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.
