Tropical fruit, citrus, cocoa.
The current incarnation of One Village's Villager Espresso bubbled up when the roasting team developed a competition blend for America’s Best Espresso in New York. The company won third place and wanted to share the coffee with everyone, so the competition blend became the newest incarnation of the seasonally-rotating Villager blend. The blend is built around washed Yirgacheffe Kochere, a complex coffee with notes of apricot, peach and citrus (plus big body for a Yirg). The second coffee in the blend bolsters the Kochere. One Village "plugs and plays" throughout the year with various Colombian microlots from Huila and Nariño sourced by Pergamino Coffee, a producer/roaster/cafe/exporter based in Medellín, Colombia. The target profile for the Latin America component is juicy, round and balanced. For the roast, OV aims at the lighter side of medium with good development. Drip it, pull shots with it, it works!
