It was in early April that I connected with Estate Coffee Company, a micro-roaster hailing out of San Antonio, Texas. Throughout the process of choosing coffees for me to feature, this company stood out by how they articulate the art of roasting coffee to its customers.
Inside of its 1,200 square foot café, Estate Coffee’s founder and owner, Brian Labarbera decided to display the coffee roasting process in the front for anyone to see, emphasizing his care for transparency and quality.
When I received one of Estate’s current offerings, Nebilyer Valley, the art of angles on the packaging already provided the edification for the coffee inside.
Upon cracking open the bag and utilizing the Hario V60 method for brewing this coffee from Papua New Guinea, I was very excited to be trying a coffee from Texas for the first time.
As soon as the coffee spread along my palate, taste notes of orange peel, grapefruit, and molasses were instantly expressed. It’s certainly a citrus dominant coffee and for those who enjoy a splash of mimosa for brunch, this is the choice for you!
