After earning second place in his first ever Southeast Regional Barista Competition, Chandler Rentz will once again be representing B&B at this year's SERBC in Atlanta. He has worked closely with B&B's Atlanta roasters to find the perfect espresso and decided on a Colombian lot from the Cundinamarco region.
As espresso, this coffee has a beautiful citrus and pecan aroma. While in the cup, the up front hints of tangerine give way to flavors of raisins and dried cherries. This coffee has a fruity sweetness that lingers in the finish. The mouth feel is out of this world; smooth, round and velvety. Definitely, my favorite SOE this year so far.Chandler will be competing tomorrow at 12:50pm EST, which you can watch along with everyone else at the United States Barista Championship website: http://usbaristachampionship.org/ If you're lucky enough to try the unreleased Colombia Cundinamarco Single Origin Espresso, leave a comment and tell Chandler what you think.
