                      Another long overdue review as I play catchup here, this one coming from Quills Coffee out of Louisville, Kentucky. It's the Colombia La Lomita, a single-origin, multi-variety coffee grown by a brother-owned farm in the Huila Department of Colombia.

                      Summary

                      A very complex coffee that helps me understand why Colombia is one of the most highly praised coffee-growing regions in the world.

                      Offers a little bit of everything in terms of its flavor profile, though, probably more dark notes than sweet, fruity notes. This is a coffee I'd describe as “blue collar” Specialty Coffee (the more ridiculous the description, the better).
