Rook Coffee launches first Limited Reserve coffee of the season
Rook's Head Roaster travels to Colombia to select the perfect coffee for a special holiday launch
By: Rook Coffee
Rook Coffee's Head Coffee Roaster, Alex Bahamonde, had the opportunity to travel to Nariño, a town in western Colombia known for producing coffees with extraordinary flavor profiles that are consistently of the highest quality. Bahamonde, one of Rook Coffee's two certified Q-Graders, tasted and rated 86 coffees from different farms and producers throughout the region. Of the staggering 86, a coffee from the farm La Maria stood out from the rest.
This incredible Micro-lot undergoes a 36-hour fermentation process and then is dried on raised beds. The end result of a meticulous processing period yields a complex, sweet and outstanding cup. La Maria is a medium roast coffee with tasting notes of watermelon candy, caramel and black tea.
The holiday season marks the return of quite a few classic flavors, however Rook's Limited Reserve program highlights extremely exclusive, premium coffees that are only available for purchase by the bag due to their limited quantities. Packaged in a Limited Reserve bag, this makes the perfect gift for any coffee lover. A 12oz bag of Limited Reserve La Maria retails at $20.
La Maria will be available at all Rook Coffee retail locations for a limited time, while supplies last. In addition to this Limited Reserve offering, Rook will also launch Limited Release Gingerbread Style Hot Coffee and Mocha Mint Style Cold Brew in the days leading up to Thanksgiving.
