Coffee, like any other produce, tends to be at its best when it is in season. We're all probably familiar with the pale, bland grocery store produce from far off climates that offer nothing more than the vaguest sense of what it ought to taste like. Fortunately, coffee freezes extremely well, and the deep chill keeps the beans from developing off flavors while maintaining the fresh and vibrant fruity qualities we love. We've had this lot of Astrid Medina's Caturra on ice since the spring, but it's as vibrant and juicy as the day we first sampled it. Earlier this year we offered a different lot of Astrid's coffee from her farm Finca Buena Vista that was the Colombia varietal, and now we're offering her Caturra. This coffee is incredibly sweet, with lots of tropical fruit and citrus qualities and a nice black tea body that reminds us a bit of an Ethiopian coffee.
