What My Taste Buds are Currently Perceiving

El Mirador Micro-Lot

Drip-dripping its way through my Chemex currently is Intelligentsia’s Finca Santuario El Mirador micro-lot. I tend not to like Colombian coffees, and even Metropolis’ awesome San Rafael earlier this year was something I could appreciate but not truly enjoy. This one is different. It’s simple, mild, sweet, and very refined. The thing that I can only describe as “Colombia taste” is not present in this coffee. What is there is something very close to brown sugar, and it’s extremely pleasing. It’s not very complex, but it’s still impressive.
