This one. This one is soooooooo CRAZY. It's so mindblowing! Like drinking a field of strawberries in your most feverish dreams. This strawberry co-fermented coffee will push your mind into new territory & make you question everything you know about coffee. About life itself.
The sticker, a play on "Life of Brian" from Monty Python, who were known for the outlandish performances they'd give, this coffee is no different. Tastes like a washed but with the intensity of a natty. Probably the craziest or runner-up craziest coffees you've ever had. This is what coffee is all about. Enjoying the classics, because that's what got us here, but opening your mind to the future of what coffee is and can be.
We'll leave you with a silly quote from "Life of Brian" so that you can laugh a little, drink this coffee, & laugh some more at how wild life is & that staying young is just constantly wanting to be surprised.
"You know what they say: some things in life are bad. They can really make you mad. Other things just make you swear and curse. When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble; give a whistle, and this'll help things turn out for the best."
A Word from Brayan, himself...Hey there, I'm Brayan, born and raised right here in Acevedo, a coffee-loving haven in Huila, Colombia. Specifically, I hail from San Odolfo, a charming rural area that happens to be a coffee production powerhouse. You see, it's a tradition in these parts to learn the ropes from the land itself – it's like our secret mentor, giving us all the tools we need for the future. My coffee journey started at the ripe age of 13, when my old man, right after school, introduced me to the magical world of coffee. Little did I know that those early lessons would spark a lifelong passion. Fast forward to today, and I've put together a project with over 60 fellow coffee aficionados, including my own family. We're on a mission to gather and sell our coffee cherries at a fair price, even if it means venturing into some pretty challenging spots. I'll share those adventures with you soon. But that's not all – we're teaming up with Forest and the Ancla milling station to give our beans that extra special touch, resulting in some truly unique coffee profiles. My dream? To let the world savor the taste of San Adolfo Huila's finest coffee. So stay tuned, because we're on a mission to make it happen!
