Bean Review: Square Mile Belen

Just let me finish this mile high and I'll be right with you. Oh, and Jerry, we are going to need a case of Kaiser rolls
Cosmo Kramer (Seinfeld episode, "The Slicer")

I wanted to get beans from Square Mile a while ago. So as soon as I spotted they had a new espresso Colombian coffee I couldn’t resist.

Espresso Time
Belen is a single origin espresso beans, from 50 producers within Belen association in Huila region.

Roaster: Square Mile
Medium Roast
Belen Espresso
Varietals: Caturra
Score: 3.5/5

Espresso Perfetto
Lovely coffee, Belen is light and full of juicy flavours. Great aromas as soon as you open the bag. It produces a thin layer of crema, and you will get a light body full of floral and berries notes. Long aftertaste, some bitterness, and strong acidity from some citrus notes. Goes well with milk based drinks such as a macchiato as the milk exalts some of the sweet notes.

The beans were grinded with a Rancilio Rocky grinder and the extraction made with a Rancilio Silvia
