Organic Roast Boy
Flavor Notes: Strong but smooth. Notes of caramel and cocoa abound in this outwardly brooding blend. Tasters, however, report a sweet finish hinting at marshmallow.
Components: Organic Honduras COMSA, Organic Colombia Tolima
About this Blend
While all of our blends rotate ingredients throughout the year as fresh crops become available, Roast Boy features Certified USDA Organic coffee from Latin America.
In 2000, sixty-two Honduran farmers joined together with a common goal to transform their farms from conventional to organic production and formed COMSA (Café Organico Marcala, S.A.). In 2001, fostered by a foundation called Funder, COMSA earned their organic certification from Bio Latina which has enabled them to market their coffee to more international buyers and realize better selling prices for their coffee. COMSA funds many local projects including paying teacher salaries and buying school supplies.
Tolima is grown and processed by the ASOCANAFI co-op in the southern part of the state of Tolima, east of the city of Cali. The cherries are depulped with a traditional depulper and zaranda (a mesh screen used to separate low-quality beans). The beans are fermented and dried in parabolic dryers and casas elba (a sun dryer with a retractable roof, normally built on top of the producer's house or on a separate lot) for eight to ten days. The ASOCANAFI co-op consists mostly of indigenous families of the native Nasa We'sx group. Varietals are Caturra, Castillo, and Typica.
