The aroma of the Colombia La Laguna is so sweet, so fragrant. Sweet baked goods, molasses, ginger, apple, grape, and white wine…
This is a beautiful coffee, right out of the gate; I actually exclaimed “wow” after my first sip. It’s on the lighter side of a medium body, possessing a silky mouthfeel with a bright, lively white wine acidity. Flavors of unrefined sugar, crisp green grape, and candy apple sweetness on top, held up by bakers chocolate, anise, hazelnut, molasses, toffee, and toasty cinnamon beneath.
If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen a recent tweet about this coffee, in which I boldly proclaim, “I’m just gonna say it. The Colombia La Laguna…is THE BEST coffee from @HalfWitCoffee I’ve had yet.” I’ve had a LOT of coffees from Halfwit; in fact, I think Halfwit has been featured on the Table more than any other roaster. So I know my tweet is a bold proclamation, but it’s one I’m standing behind.
Halfwit Coffee Roasters’s Colombia La Laguna is the best offering I’ve had from them yet. For a coffee that was so bright and lively, it was structured very well; it had great balance, with its effervescence being contrasted by its heavy, chewy flavors of toffee and molasses. Moreover, it was just a damn tasty coffee.
