From Jeremy @ Long & Short Coffee:
This is a perfect candidate for multi-use brewing and is at home equally on filter as it is on espresso. For espresso orders, we’ll push the roast a tad to smooth out the acidity and increase body and sweetness.
Last year we sampled excellent community microlots from both the Bruselas and Pitalito regions, and although we bought the Pitalito batch, we felt as though they had a harmonious set of tasting notes. The Pitalito was bright and fruity, where the Bruselas was round, deep and chocolatey. Well, imagine our surprise when discussing this with our friends at Nordic Approach who have been working on a project to bring these two together! The result is a beautifully well-rounded coffee that has all the hallmarks of a brilliant Colombian microlot, scoring a lofty 87/100 points.
Bruselito is a community coffee from the towns of Bruselas and Pitalito, in the Laboyos Valley to the south of Huila, southwest Colombia. Like much of the coffee that comes from Colombia, many of the coffee farmers will band together to produce and sell their lots of coffee, similar to what you might find in areas of Ethiopia. The valley is surrounded by coffee trees with incredible fruit born from the volcanic soil.
