Excelsa, a species DIFFERENT than traditional Arabica. It is known for its smoother, rounder shape and bold taste. We’ve been using this for our Cold Brew and it has been pretty *chef’s kiss*, but this won’t be the main replacement of what we’ve been sharing with you guys.
We want to use this platform to express that this species, Excelsa, throughout the years, has formed into the tradition of it being considered as Barako. This was formed dependently on where this was being grown geographically. To our understanding, Barako is exclusively Liberica, considering the fact of its origins back home in Lipa, Batangas, Philippines. We are always open to the conversation, should you feel otherwise.
