These Las Planadas Colombian coffee beans are grown on the Granja La Esperanza family farm, located in the south west of Colombia, in the Cauca Valley. This organic Arabica blend reveals notes of blackcurrant and caramel. Medium roast designed for a good espresso. 4 x 250g packs.
Our Medium+ Roast:
The medium+ roast is halfway between Cafés Lugat's dark roast and medium roast. A darker roast allows for more body and consistency, to the detriment of the specificities of the coffee's terroir. However, a medium roast offers a more lively cup with a more pronounced terroir coupled with a slight acidity.
The point of this particular roast is to reveal the sweetness of the coffee and to find the perfect balance in cup. A medium+ roast is recommended with espressos in order to enjoy an aromatic coffee, accessible to all.
The medium+ roast is the perfect gateway to the world of specialty coffee for espresso amateurs who want to experience the specificity and the quality of terroir coffees.
