Lucero Anayeli | For Drip, Flash, Espresso



 Roaster Notes:


My heart flutters for this beautiful coffee. This coffee exudes a rich, sweet hazelnut aroma once ground. The first sip presents a soft blueberry hue encompassed inside of brown sugar notes that I liken to a blueberry cobbler. The body carries a rich caramel and coats the tongue with lucious nougat that pairs so beautifully with milk. The finish is gracefully sweet and somewhat floral like fresh honeycomb and vanilla. You will want to try this delicately complex coffee in everything. It shines in every brew method, but the cloudlike crema when brewed as espresso is a dream.

Importer Notes:

“Lucero Anayeli Torres is the wife of Elvis Reinerio Tineo Rafael who is a second-generation coffee producer that  owns land in the El Diamante area of Jaen. Elvis himself owns 3 hectares of land, which is planted with bourbon, caturra and catuai and sits at an altitude of 1600 to 1900 masl. Elvis and his family work the land together, coordinating their picking, processing, and drying and sharing their facilities. Over the last few years Elvis has been investing in improving the quality of his coffee, improving the quality of picking and experimenting with pre-fermentations and different fermentation methods. Elvis has participated in the Cup of Excellence competition two years in a row, in 2018 he finished 7th place and in 2019 in the top 30. El Diamante is one of the closest coffee producing areas to the city of Jaen and therefore has a huge cooperative presence, at least in the lower elevations. We work with a couple of coffee producing families in El Diamante, who have farms from 1600 to 2000masl. The main varieties grown in the medium altitudes is catuai and castillo, and at higher altitudes it is all bourbon, caturra and typica. El Diamante is one of the few areas in Jaen to have protected forests, which are home to a variety of flora and fauna native to the region. Not only that, but there are also many water sources that supply much of the water to the city. This thriving natural environment creates a beautiful setting to grow coffee, but also contributes to the richness and stability of the soils in the area. The cup profile of the coffees in this area is very distinct, with a heavily fruited cup and a pronounced acidity.”
