The Trufala blend is our seasonal espresso blend wherein we'll blend two coffees from the same origin to give the coffee some depth of flavor. It's our take on a "single origin espresso," a way of giving the espresso some depth of flavor while retaining the bits of origin that make it special.
Of our espresso blends, this one is optimized to be used in smaller milk drinks as it is a brighter, lighter and more delicate espresso that might not be great in lots of milks and syrups. Our goal is to mix a natural and washed coffee from the same origin (ideally the same farm!) to give a nice balanced shot of espresso to you.
This latest iteration of the Truffala is a blend of two Colombian microlots. The first is from our good friend Eduin Hernandez. This is the 4th year we're buying this delicious natural from his farm, Alto Bonito, in Planadas, Tolima.
The second is a washed coffee from Elver Paya's Claver farm in Gaitania, Tolima, better known as the birthplace of the FARC. This farm is run by the indigenous Nasa We'sx community, who use coffee as a way to achieve harmony between prosperity and respect for their ancestral lands.
