Victrola Coffee Roasters - Colombia La Banda Rebelde
Strawberry, Sour Melon and Orange
Description About Victrola Coffee Roasters - Colombia La Banda Rebelde
Victrola Coffee Roasters found some kindred spirits With the La Banda Relde from the La Plata region of Colombia. Not content with focusing on high yield growing, the Pajoy family worked to grow higher quality beans across their farms while also preserving the health of the soils. Victrola recognized their quality and started a direct buying relationship that helps them continue their mission. Like our favorite coffees from Colombia, this one is heavy with fruit notes. We taste strawberry sour, melon, and orange.

Recommended Brew Methods
A 2:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your espresso shot is recommended. Using a scale to dial in your shots makes the process faster and more accurate. Your espresso grind should be very fine and powdery. Shots should take 30-40 seconds to brew and be thick and syrupy. Don’t stress, adjustments are always needed to get your shots pulling just right!

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.

Start with a 16:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your dosing. You’ll want a medium grind size for drip brewing that’s finer than what you’d use for pourover. Make sure you give the filter basket a shake to evenly distribute the grounds in the filter for best results. Turn on your brewer and it’ll do the rest!

For a French Press brew we recommend a 1:12 coffee to water ratio with coffee ground at the consistency of sea salt. Add your grounds to the brewing chamber. then add twice the water as there are grounds to the chamber. Stir gently and allow to bloom for about 30 seconds. Place the top on the press and allow it to steep for 4 minutes. Plunge the press slowly and enjoy!

A coarse ground coffee, water, your favorite cold brewer, and time is about all you need! The result is ready to drink cold brew, or cold brew concentrate that can be diluted with water, depending on the ratio of water to coffee used.
