Master blender’s notes:
Every coffee drinker – sooner or later – will develop the desire to discover the coffee that can be enjoyed on its own, without milk or sugar added in the cup and Forza #2 coffee blend is Mostra’s attempt to deliver just that. Creating such blend, one needs to resort in a selection of coffees – nearly all of them with similar characteristics but with different domineering tones to each other – all of them gentle in acidity.
This coffee journey’s 1st element was coffee produced within the region of Calle – a step away from the breath taking Soberania National Park – within Honduras (Growing Altitude: 1350 to 2000 meters / Variety: Arabica Cattura, Typica, Pacas & Bourbon / Milling Process: Fully washed).
With malic acidity & extremely light dried fruit notes already in the cup, the next step would be seeking elements of brightness and distinct tones of acidity. Sidama region – Ethiopia was the 2nd coffee of choice (Growing Altitude: 1700 to 2200 meters / Variety: Arabica Kurume / Milling Process: Washed).
The 3rd coffee used in this blend had to contribute body to the mix…but in a gentle – not over powering – way. Coffee from an area close to Sipi falls and on the western slopes of Mt. Elgon in Uganda does just that. (Growing Altitude: 1300 to 2200 meters / Variety: Arabica Typica / Milling Process: Fully washed).
When it comes to gentle sugar & caramel notes within a coffee cup, one is always bound to consider the presence of Brazilian coffee and this is exactly the 4th coffee of choice forming Forza #2 blend (Growing Altitude: 800 to 1350 meters / Variety: Arabica Catuai / Milling Process: Dry).
Finally, a touch of a coffee that is conquered by toasty walnut hints, gentle but stable body & clear after taste – the last element in this blend – was a specific coffee from Guatemala (Growing Altitude: 1600 to 1700 meters / Variety: Arabica Caturra / Milling Process: Wet).
