How To Brew
Hartmann Caturra is a really sweet and winey coffee. We not surprised if you will get slightly bitter cup if you are using normal brewing recipe. We are highly recommended you to use coarser grind size. This will counter balance the sweetness and intensity to allow other flavors to shine. We also use slightly low brewing temperature 92 to give gentle extraction. The result deep berries flavors such as blackberries and tickle sarsaparilla taste. The flavors swing from toffee, liquorice, black berries turn into sarsaprilla, rum, cacao and winey after taste. Hartmann Caturra really represent general perception of good Panama. Complex and wide spectrum of taste profile. We suggest you to keep some and brew it after 3 weeks. God know what else that you will discover. Jeng3X
