Description About Batdorf and Bronson - Colombia La Ilusion
Rosevel Ortiz Escarpeta’s “Finca La Ilusion” farm has produced some incredible coffee over the years. In fact, this crop was a 2019 Cup of Excellence finalist, clearly showing the quality of this producer. After harvest, this coffee is dried in elevated beds over the course of 25 days for a natural processing style. With floral and lavender aromas, this medium roast offers notes of berries and cream in the cup. With a lactic body, you’ll really get that creaminess in a pour over. Adventurous baristas might find a delicious espresso shot with the right equipment and time spent dialing in.

Recommended Brew Methods
We recommend a 16:1 water to coffee ratio for your dosing. Use a scale for best results! For pour over, use a medium-coarse grind size somewhere between drip and press levels. Start with a short pour to wet the grounds and “bloom” the coffee for 30 seconds, followed by two more pours, divided in half to reach the appropriate remaining ratio of water to coffee.
Superautos make brewing espresso easy. All you need to do is add beans to the hopper and press a button to pull yourself a shot. If your shot is a bit sour you’ll want to dial the grinder a little bit finer and try again. If it’s bitter, dial it a little coarser. You can find instructions on how to do this for your machine in the manual. Just remember to avoid oily beans that can clog your superauto’s grinder!
