Flavour Category
chocolate & caramel chocolate & caramel
High quality coffee has wide ranging, naturally occurring taste notes. The dominant flavour profile in this coffee is Chocolate & Caramel. Brought out by the roasting process – caramelisation happens towards the end of the roast. Generally the darker the roast, the more dominant the chocolate and caramel flavours are.
Roast
This coffee is a light roast. Roast level influences the flavour and body of coffee. Darker roasts are fuller bodied, lighter roasts brighter. The beans are light brown in colour (unsurprisingly), it will retain more of the natural flavour of the coffee. This can result in a higher acidity and may often show more fruit and floral notes. This roast style means the quality of the coffee shines through the best.
Quality Score
84.75
Coffee scoring over 80 on Speciality Coffee Association scale is considered High Quality, Speciality Coffee.
Processing Method
This coffee was processed using the washed method. Post-harvest processing influences the taste profile. Washed coffees are brighter, naturally processed are sweeter and honey processed are somewhere in between.

Bright Note

The coffees in this blend...

There are currently 2 producers that provide the coffees that make up our Bright Note Blend.

Firstly Timaná is a municipality located in the South of Huila, Colombia, surrounded by the Central and Cordillera Central and Occidental ranges of the Colombian Andes. The area boasts good soils and high altitude - the perfect environment for growing speciality coffee. The ASPROTIMANA co-operative was formed by 32 farmers in 2001, and now boasts over 220 members with a common goal to create socio-economic stability for coffee farming families in the region.

The Primavera farm is the largest farm that Union sources from. Primavera, translating to ‘Spring’ in Portuguese refers to the perfect climate in which to grow coffee on the farm. With temperatures between 20 and 24 degrees Celsius and an average precipitation of 1,000 to 1,300 mm per year. Social and environmental sustainability have always been integral to the farm’s operations. Coffee pulp is composted to produce natural fertiliser and the Primavera team also conducts outreach to neighbouring farmers to share knowledge and best practices.
