Coming from family owned farms located in the department of Santander, Colombia. On average, each producer cultivates their coffee on 3 acres of land. Coffee producers use their own micro-mill to process harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee, typically on elevated tables inside solar dryers that provide protection from the rain.
Tasting Notes: A wonderful fresh and clean Colombian offering. Smoother and sweeter than most with a buttery textured body and rich chocolate and walnut overtones; reminiscent of a nice Huila. Lighter roast will have some floral lemony acidity balancing in the cup but we would consider a bit lower acidity all together. Medium roasts one can get a little soft fruit tone balancing with the nutty and chocolaty factor to create a great everyday drinker. Darker roasts get a bit stronger and more edgy but the roasty notes compliment the nuttiness.
Roasting Notes: A very nice cup from light to dark. Lower chaff and even roasting, a fun bean to play with some different roast levels. Setup helps smooth it out a bit but 12-24 hours after roasting was quite tasty.
