RARE COFFEE SERIES: TABI from Finca El Encanto Natural - Espresso Roast
At Caffenation we like to take you with us to the miracle world of Specialty Coffee. As the type of varietal, or in other words variety, is one the most influential parts if it comes to taste, we are going to dig deeper into some of the rarest coffee bean types on planet earth.
- Nice body with moderate acidity
- Rich and complex flavors
- Notes of black berry, chocolate and caramel
Rob says: TABI means “good” in the Guambiano (a native Colombian tribe) dialect.
It was the correct name for this coffee beans variety given by Cenicafe, the Colombia coffee research institute, after 25 years of research. Tabi specialty coffee beans were developed using the hybrid of Timor and the varieties Bourbon and Typica, which are tall plants and mainly produced in areas of less rain and more direct sun, while being more resistant to leaf rust.
It’s not the easiest and most logical varietal to choose as it’s often a ‘hit or miss’. Let’s hope that the Tabi beans in our coffee bags, washed or natural processed, are all a bull’s eye hit. Enjoy.
THIS FIRST EVER TABI VARIETY COFFEE IS A NATURAL PROCESSED COFFEE BY THE HANDS OF Juan Saldarriaga, OWNER OF FINCA EL ENCANTO.
