Grown at high altitude under the shade of old-growth jungle, this Robusta will shatter all expectations with its depth and complexity. Growing Robusta this way is almost unheard-of, but the result is extraordinary. Low acidity and no bitterness make it easy to drink, too.
Key notes: Chocolate, vanilla, spice; surprising depth and richness.
Robusta is smooth, low-acid coffee that stimulates mostly the back of the palate, which is responsible for flavor retention and depth. It is also twice as high in caffeine as most Arabicas. People who have difficulties with the acidity of Arabicas and the lack of "persistence" of taste generally throroughly enjoy Robusta or a blend of Robusta and Arabica.
We purchase this coffee as 100% Direct Trade through our long-time supplier in the Philippines, Bote Central, who are a company involved in charitable work in agriculture, crafts and clerical work, providing jobs for many young people at risk and using proceeds to assist community development.
Our new shipment that just arrived is incredibly rich, one of the best Robusta flavor profiles we have ever seen.
