Colombia - Coffee Triangle 030 - coffee plantation tour

Ready for tasting.

 

After seeing the growing, the processing and the roasting, it was time for the tasting. Like tasting wine, proper coffee tasting is a detailed and specific process, starting with breaking the foam and inhaling the aroma of each. Then tasting, making sure your palette is neutralized (usually via aqua con gas). Super and fun and tasty!

 

The plantation roasts their own coffee, picking (one by one by hand, seriously) just the best of the A-grade beans making a real great coffee. The Colombia beans are quite mild and sweet, not needing sugar or milk.
