Brewing coffee on a weekend morning as simply put is a soothing and cathartic ritual for the senses. Aside from the enlivening aromas released into the air and the eclectic ranges of taste notes that tease the palate, learning about the story behind the coffee is what heightens the appreciation for what’s been crafted into the cup.
Coming from Los Angeles, California brings Takeflight Coffee. The founder, Deaton Pigot has successfully captured and imprinted the company’s interpretation of coffee origin on its packaging. In this week’s feature, let’s talk about its latest offering: Colombia Urrao.
My candid first impression was that I immediately picked up intense aromas of blueberry jam while the coffee was being ground. Once finishing the pour over, smells of fresh blueberry pie filled the air; it was an absolute delight of what joys coffee can bring.
Being a washed process coffee, I was pleasantly surprised by the strong taste notes of blueberry and strawberry rhubarb. Overall, this coffee possesses a low acidity, while having a silk-like mouth feel and light body. I am thoroughly impressed by the work Deaton and Takeflight has done and am very excited to see how this roasting company progresses in its future!
