Hands down the best Colombian coffee i have tried to date.... so balanced!
I bought two bags of coffee, and they were fresh and roasted at the same day I got them. Honestly, I don’t like new roast coffee that didn’t have a rest period, they’re full of gasses (carbon dioxide) that because of the roasting. It was difficult to dial in since its too frsh, also its too difficult to taste the notes of the coffee.
I didn’t want to give a bad or good review yet to be fair. If I’d buy coffee again, I’d get an old roast like 10-14 days after roasting will be a good time to pull great shots.
I definitely enjoyed the Colombian Timana. It’s a great roast. It’s very smooth and tastes great as is or with a splash of cream. I love to use the Chemex with this roast.
First time trying a coffee that wasn’t dark roasted, and this has an excellent chocolate flavor. Will order again.
