Intense grapefruit with cane sugar flavor and an herbal aftertaste; clean with big tart acidity and a smooth mouthfeel.
Medium/Dark (Full City Roast) to Dark (French Roast)

Taste: Alexander Vargus has developed a bean with a taste that is large: full bodied mouthfeel, bracing and rich acidity, and an elegant herbal aftertaste.  It embodies the best of the Colombians, just bigger!

Roast: Medium/Dark (Full City) highlights everything about this bean, but it shines as bright dark roasted (French) and even takes a very dark (Italian) roast well for those who love a hearty cup without bitterness.

About: Finca La Piragua is a 5-hectare farm with 4 hectares planted with Bourbon coffee. The owner, Alexander Vargas, started out in coffee on his family’s farm, as many growers do. He started on a piece of land his parents lent him, and he grew 1,000 Caturra trees. Five years later he was able to buy his own property, and because Caturra was struggling with coffee-leaf rust, he switched his main production to Bourbon.

This coffee is picked when the cherries are bright red and depulped the following day, after being placed in a hopper or tank overnight. After depulping, it is fermented for 16 hours, then washed three times. Alexander uses both parabolic and mechanical driers, and the drying process usually takes 10–15 days.
