Caramel Plum Colombian Snail Shot

(08/27/10)
I was looking around for something to throw in the Probat to warm it up for an espresso roasting session and I decided to give the http://www.coffeeshrub.com/shrub/coffee/colombia-peaberry-los-caracoles-… a whirl. Thing is I got distracted and ended up roasting it to a Roasted Coffee Pictorial Guide. “>Full City+ level instead of the City+ I was aiming for…so you know what I thought: SO espresso Friday! I mostly roast blends here at the warehouse but am getting more into Single Origin espresso and this is my new favorite. There is a pronounced caramel sweetness that is so pleasing and balanced with dark fruit hints. Caracoles is how farmers in Colombia refer to peaberry lots like this one because of the snail-like shape of the beans, and to have a lot such as this shipped in Grain Pro from Colombia is really something special.
