Yes Coffee Roasters is a small-batch specialty coffee roaster located in Monroe, Wisconsin. Now in the heart of the February-July coffee season, the coffee market is currently dominated by Latin American offerings. Aside from this Colombian, Yes Coffee currently offers a Costa Rican Decaf, as well as their own monthly subscription service (similar to those offered by Heart Coffee Roasters and Stumptown Coffee Roasters).
I tried this coffee as espresso, pour-over, and french press. Though it was a bit on the light side for my preference as espresso, the roast performed particularly well as french press coffee. This coffee is another fruity, syrupy Colombian; this year was a great comeback for the country's coffee farmers. I detected notes of lemon zest and tea rose in cupping; the coffee presented a flavorful, tropical aroma that was pleasantly tart. We noted a rounded apricot flavor that resonated as the cup cooled. The coffee had a dense, viscous mouthfeel that harmonized well with some floral acidity.
