Koppi Roasters

Koppi Roasters

This week we will be serving coffee from Koppi Roasters. We selected two coffees from Koppi’s offerings in order to serve one coffee as espresso and one as filter coffee. The Espresso is Koppi’s EL PORVENIR - CATURRA which presents flavor notes of Caramel and sweet fruit and the Filter is Koppi’s EL PORVENIR - TABI which presents flavor notes of Chocolate, Red Berries, Floral. We chose these two coffees because they have a common origin: Finca El Porvenir. As Koppi describes, “[t]he farm El Porvenir is found in the heart of the region Palestina in southern Huila, Colombia. The farm is run by Sandra Milena Mora and her husband. They own 12 hectares but only produce coffee on 5 of them leaving the rest as a natural reserve. On the 5 hectares they have around 20,000 Caturra trees and 4,000 Tabi trees”. Just as a wine finds flavor through terroir, the seeds of the coffee cherries produced by the flowering tree form the flavor of brewed coffee. Roasting any variety of coffee impacts the flavor of the bean, however, some roasters are able to roast coffee in such a manner that subtle flavors particular to the coffees growing origin are accentuated. We chose these two varieties from one origin to highlight how the subtle differences impact the flavor in a cup of brew coffee. In other words, like Koppi, we selected both varieties of coffee growing on Finca El Porvenir to display that coffee can taste more than ‘coffee’. Last week we featured Morgon Coffee Roasters and the coffee we selected from them was their roast of Caturra ad Tabi from Finca El Porvenir. Both roasters roasted the Caturra to be served as espresso and roasted the Tabi to be served as filter coffee. The two coffees taste different and both Roasters have done an excellent job featuring the flavors of origin.
