Our new single origin coffee has arrived, we’re almost done with roasting it and it’ll be ready for you very shortly, definitely in time for work next Monday morning. So, we thought we’d tell you about it before the work week starts so you have something to really look forward to on that Monday morning!! This time we’ve gone over to South America and chosen a bean from the word famous coffee growing country of Colombia. Let's have a look shall we.
Colombian Supremo is the name of our third Single Origin Coffee and it is grown in the rich soils of the Popayan region of Colombia. This is a Region of the Colombian Sierra Nevadas whose coffee is admired for it's quality. Popayan is a luscious area of the Sierra Nevadas with idea rainfall, cloud cover and soil conditions for coffee cultivation. The local micro-climate in this mountainous area helps to prolong the development of the coffee cherry, enhancing the flavours that the beans inside absorb from the fruit itself.
Smooth and full bodied, Colombian Supremo has balanced acidity, subtle berry note, your classic coffee aromas, a nice aftertaste and a very smoooooth mouth feel.
It's a rather superlative name isn't it? Well these are the largest beans that Colombia produces and it is the size of these beans that win them this name; they’re rather large!!
Come down to the brewery and visit the Tumut River Roasters and check out the Colombian Supremo soon! Buy yourself a bag if you like it because, as you probably know, once our single origin is gone its gone!!
A red ale is a form of pale ale that is categorised by its colour. There’s still debate around the fact of whether or not a red ale is really its own class of ale or whether or not it falls under the umbrella of English bitter. A red ale is categorised by a slight sweetness and tea-like flavours. It has a light hop and toasted malt flavours, making it a well-balanced beer. It is made with a high proportion of pale malts and often contains caramel colouring to give it its signature red hue. It is often that red ales will have a dry finish. These beers are very easy drinking, as our very own Tim Martin will tell you from personal experience!
