The quintessential Colombian coffee, La Minita’s Reserva del Patrón hails from Nariño, the southernmost district of Colombia. This coffee is “cherry-picked” (pardon the pun) from specific growing conditions exclusively in high-altitude plantations––if coffee does not exceed 1600 meters, it is not considered for export. Because of this process, only 6,000 of La Minita’s 150,000 bags are Reserva del Patrón and make it to the highest Europrep standards produced yearly.If you have loved Don Enrique, del Patron is great replacement!

Cupping Notes: Bright, fruity, and well balanced. Excellent body, deep, rich, complex and bright. Fruity (currants and plums) overtones with a nice chocolate background, just a hint of earthiness and a long, satisfying finish.

Try before you stock up with a 3lb or 5lb sample!!

Roasted past FC to a darker medium roast. A very well balanced cup, smooth complex with a chocolate finish. The beans quality was excellent, very even roast. With so many choices of great beans from CBC is hard to choose a favorite.

This coffee roasted to true medium brown is not good flavor when eaten with sweet food, but is a good sipping coffee. It is smooth, complex, with a slight chocolate finish.

I roast very dark. It is my favorite dark roast. I brew a double shot for a latte. The chocolate flavor from the dark roast compliments the froth and foam.

Rich, great flavor, balanced, wonderful aroma. This is an easy drinker. Nice sweetness. I can easily see this becoming our staple coffee at the cafe.

Roasted these for a total of 12 mins in my Hive Roaster and the plum notes showed up nicely, which made my wife happy! Happy wife = happy life! I'll be ordering a big ol' bag of these as it's as advertised ... deep, rich, luxurious, decadent, long lasting, etc. I went about 90 seconds past FC with these and I did all I could to slowly develop these up to AND after FC and I was rewarded greatly. These may just be tied for the best Colombian beans I've ever had!

Excellent coffee. With the Maui Red Catui unavailable or ridiculously priced, I have been trying Costa Rican varieties. Good but not great. Recently I bought 20 lbs of this Columbia Reserva Patron del Narino just to experiment with because it seemed like a great price. I’m still trying to find my favorite roasting level but it has amazing flavor at the first and second cracks and everywhere between. Full, fruity and yes, well-balanced. I’m migrating back to Columbia beans.
