Superlost Coffee // Solo Sábado

Superlost Coffee // Solo Sábado

Our inaugural batch, Solo Sábado, is a Colombian coffee from Caicedonia an area known for its high altitude coffee. High-grown coffee yields less fruit on the plant, but it produces a superior quality bean, translating to a cup quality matched only by a select group of coffee-producing countries. This batch was grown at Finca El Porvenir, and processed by Cooperativa de Caficultores de Caicedonia.

Solo Sábado means “only Saturday” in Spanish. This name is significant to this batch because in the tiny region of Colombia called Caicendonia where this coffee is grown, the tradition for the past 150 years is for the coffee farmers to roast the beans as a group, but only on Saturdays. It’s a ritual for the local coffee community and they proudly celebrate the fruits of their labor on this day.

The artwork on the first bag was designed by comic book artist, Michael Zolla.*

CUPPINGNOTES

The aroma coming off of the Solo Sábado is sweet and fragrant. It’s a fruit-forward aroma, with scents of or red berries and citrus, being propelled forward by a backbone of mlik chocolate.

The flavor isn’t as sweet and pleasant as the aroma suggested it would be; it’s very complex, but doesn’t possess a great clarity, which makes it difficult to pinpoint exactly what I’m tasting.
