Sacred Acre - Navigator Espresso
This is a really solid espresso blend. It’s not too aggressive or too bland, and it has a lot of familiar flavors that are easy to pick up on without being distracting or weird. The initial taste is a big hit of smooth milk chocolate with some hazelnut flavor coming through, and then it goes into a more savory caramel taste with a nice green apple finish. There’s just enough brightness, but it’s not very fruity.
This special coffee comes from many places. There are 5 different varietals harvested by farmers in Brazil, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Honduras who organize themselves into groups to help each other.
The Catuai and Mundo Novo varietals are sourced from smallholders in Minas Gerais, Brazil. These coffees were shaded most of the day, causing it to mature slowly, allowing a bright acidity and beautiful honey-like sweetness to develop!
In Honduras, the COMSA co-op supports 1,200 members across 15 communities on the steep mountain slopes around Marcala. The region has a long history of producing excellent coffee due to its high elevation and cool climate."
