Bruselito #1 is the first of our offerings from Huila, Colombia this harvest.
For us, this coffee is a fantastic example of what collaborative efforts in the coffee industry can achieve. Bruselito is a blend of high-end micro-lots grown around Pitalito, a town at the centre of the coffee-growing region of Bruselas. This region produces some outstanding coffees, but many producers operate on such a small scale (50-100 bags per lot) that it is difficult for them to sell their coffees on the international market. As part of an ongoing project in Bruselas our importer Nordic Approach carefully selects micro-lots from local producers to produce a blend that represents the best characteristics of coffee in this region.
Bruselito #1 reminds us that specialty coffee isn't always about exclusivity and single-farm rareties. This project is an example of how blending, when done carefully, can result in traceable, sustainable and delicious coffees: greater than the sum of their parts!
We selected this coffee for its velvety mouthfeel and balance between delicate florals and ripe plum flavours. It makes a great full bodied espresso with heaps of complexity and is a superior coffee for milk drinks.
