Colombia Micro Lot #4 Filter-Roast Coffee Beans
A super-grade Colombian fully washed micro-lot prepared as a light, filter roast ideally suited for a myriad of alternative brew methods and applications, or for pure espresso enthusiasts.
As a lighter roasted bean, it's not particularly suited to milk-based espresso beverages as the body and finish may not be as deep or rich compared to traditional espresso roass.
If you use any of the contemporary styles of brewing like Aeropress, Syphon, Moccamaster, Pour Over (such as a V60) or Cold Drip, then this is the ideal typle and style of roasted coffee for those brewing methods where the fruits and acids remain delicately structured within the bean.
Notes of golden raisins, caramel and vanilla pods - this coffee is remarkably clean, complex and delicious.

For those espresso enthusiasts with top gear and heaps of skills, it's also possible to extract this coffee using espresso equipment, however, you must be aware that filter roasts do not have the body or depths of flavours to suit the addition of milk (e.g. filter roast coffees prepared on espresso machines have plenty of acid, but they don't have the body or depth for adding milk!).
Filter roasted (light) coffees may also present more challenges to "dial in" the optimal espresso extraction settings, but for those that can achieve it, the rewards are mind-blowing jammy sweetness and insane cup complexity.
