Grumpy Mule Organic Colombia Cafe Equidad Coffee
First tasting for over a week - and onto a new brand. It didn't look appealing - an oily looking surface and very little foam. The initial smell was of cigar ash - which knocked me back a bit to say the least. Even the first taste had more of the taste when you pick up the wrong beer can at a party and its the one people have been using to put their butts in. Not sounding good so far? Well.. you can warm to it a bit, but it's a bit harsh for my liking. Agricultural. 5/10
"Roasted a little darker, this is a fantastically flavoursome coffee with notes of dark chocolate and toasted hazelnuts. The medium acidity and body grant the coffee a delightfully smooth flavour and lingering finish. Enjoying the breath-taking backdrop of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range, the shade grown, organic and Fairtrade certified coffee is carefully cultivated on small plots of land using traditional practices. Washed in the abundant mountain waters, the coffee parchment is then sun-dried in wooden boxes or typical patios before delivery to the local cooperative."
