Meet S.O.B. Espresso

For its S.O.B. Espresso, Folly Coffee hunts for beans that have balance enough to create both a great espresso and brewed coffee. Yet in creating a blend, they stay true to their mission of being a single origin roaster. That's where S.O.B. comes in: Single Origin Blend.

Folly takes a single origin coffee like this one from the Cauca region of Colombia, roasts a portion of it to just before second crack for nicely developed deep notes, and roasts the other portion to just after first crack, bringing out bright, clear notes. The results is a truly one of a kind espresso blend that offers some deeper, more traditional dark chocolate, roasty flavors with the brightness and clarity of a light roast espresso shot.

Cauca, Colombia

The Cauca region in the south-western part of the country faces the Pacific Ocean where daily temperatures range from close to 11 degrees centigrade (51 F) by night and 18 degrees centigrade (64 F) by day. These temperature variations alter the rhythm of ripening, giving the coffee the higher acidity levels, distinctive sweet notes, and particular caramelized fragrance for which the region is known.

Here the great Andes mountains split into Cordilleras (parallel mountain ranges): Cordillera Occidental, Cordillera Centro – Oriental, and 70% of Colombia’s safe water springs from these high, cold mountains and brutally rugged terrain. One of these rivers, the Cauca, lends its name to the region.

The people here--descendents of Guambiana(Misak), Páez (Nasa), Yanacona, Coconucos and other first-nation peoples as well as Europeans, are resilient and hard working, and it is their efforts that have made Cauca the rich agricultural region that it is today.
