George Howell coffee: El Roble, Santander, Colombia
We’ve wanted to serve George Howell’s coffee for a long time. It was actually the first coffee roaster that I visited, back in early 2009. George hosted Ayr and I at his roastery. I recall doing a formal cupping and discussing coffee varietals, light roast coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts, brew methods, among other things.
El Roble is an organic coffee from Colombia. It will be rolling to most Clover locations starting today. I think it’s smooth with a bit of a fruity tang to it. Really delicate. Definitely taste it black before adding milk and sugar. If you stop in to try it, be sure to let us know what you think.
