This is the second iteration of the famous Edwin Noreña IPA process Natural that we have had in our rotation and it won't be the last! We believe Edwin produces some of the best and most unique natural processed coffees out there. His attention to detail combined with taking risk into uncharted territory is really what we believe sets him apart. This coffee is truly a celebratory coffee and is one that has to be shared with others as it is about as wild as coffee can get!

What’s in the cup? The Aroma on this cup is full of citrus & floral notes even in the fresh grounds. When water first hits the grounds we get an aroma of Hazy IPA and Rosemary. The first sip of this coffee brings a full citra hop rush followed by jasmine that may be due to the Pink Bourbon varietal. As it cools, the cup rounds itself out with notes that remind us a peach gummy and the overall experience is a real treat. Think drip coffee or pour-over for this one!

A note from Yellow Rooster about their relationship with Edwin:

Our sourcing partner in Colombia, Manuel Barbosa began talking to us in late 2020 about a guy he went to school with growing up. “He’s working on some really incredible stuff” said Manuel, “I hope you guys like what we send.” Well, “like” was an understatement. What we tasted on the cupping table that day amounted to a paradigm shift — flavors we never perceived or thought possible in coffee jumped off the table. And they weren’t one-trick ponies — these coffee had it all: Aroma, body, sweetness, balance, acidity, fruit, florals… you name it. You see, Edwin is a life-long,third-generation coffee grower, a trained agronomist & agroindustrial engineer, consultant, Q-Grader and Cup of Excellence judge. His coffees represent an intense pursuit of flavor based upon knowledge, experience and years of trial and error. Since our first import of Edwin’s coffees in January 2021, we’ve had the pleasure of representing his expertise to roasters across the USA and New Zealand, and are grateful he entrusted Manuel (and us!) with his life’s pursuit.
