Coffee Description

This balanced coffee launches with fragrances of caramel apple cake and cocoa nib. In the cup, all sorts of goodness happens: raisins drenched in dark chocolate waltz with caramel-dipped braeburn apples. Sweet toffee-like acidity and mild body make it versatile and extremely drinkable.

About Paisa Blend of Colombia

Due to the fact that Colombia harvests and ships coffee year-round—one of the only nations to do so—there are always fresh Colombian coffees on the menu!. Thanks to this abundance and flexibility, Upper Left is able to create their Colombia Paisa, which represents the classic profile of Colombian coffees all year long.

They carefully select then and blend two fresh Colombian coffees to present a striking and complex flavor profile that is never out of season. Thus the name "Paisa," a term of endearment for Colombians, seems especially appropriate.

Our founder and General Manager, Emily McIntyre, is particularly fond of Colombia and Colombian coffees, as she had the privilege of working with coffee growers in the Manizales area, a misty section of Central Colombia with seven distinct microclimates. Coffees from Colombia tend to be mysterious, but reliable, kind of like the country's beauty and charm.
