Lake Effect Dark Colombia was born in the mountains of the Huila Department. In 2022 we’ve released a trio of coffees, named in the spirit of winter, to warm the soul. Lake Effect is for those coffee geeks that enjoy big chocolatey, roasty vibes in their brew. It’s comfort in a cup as you shelter from icy deluge.
The climate and location of breathtaking Huila, Colombia, offer the ideal growing conditions for delicious coffee. As a result, coffees originating from this region are particularly tasty. In a cup of Lake Effect Dark Colombia, you’ll taste the complex yet refined flavors that high altitudes and great processing yield. Rich plum sweetness is given further depth by notes of cocoa, red grape, and grapefruit acidity. The medium body of this coffee rounds out all of these flavors in the cup.
This particular coffee was grown by a group of farmers who mill their coffee together after harvest. Once the coffee arrived at the mill, it was processed using a fully washed process. It was then prepared for shipment after being dried on patios. This processing method translates to crisp, clean flavors in the final cup.
Lake Effect is for the days when spring seems nowhere in sight. Whether you brew it as espresso or slow it down in a pour-over, Lake Effect Dark Colombia pairs well with those late winter mornings.
