A beautifully sweet offering from Colombia, this coffee has a light apricot fruitiness combined with a silky mouthfeel and distinct milk chocolate notes and toffee sweetness.
Medium Roast Level
This particular coffee is from a neighborhood called San Marcos which is in the mountains outside of Timana, a small town in Southern Huila.
A few farmers in this area have contributed to this lot so the micro climate and terroir is very similar and unique. The state of Huila has been one of the consistent stars of Colombia with a number of COE winners and incredible small farmers throughout the region. Coffees from here when done right have tropical fruit, vanilla, caramel, chocolate, panella and bright acidity
Farmers in this region average about six acres of land. They pick, pulp, ferment and dry their coffee on raised beds with parabolic covers. They tend to work similar varietals, some old, some relatively old and some new but the style is pretty much the same.
The terroir or soil, sun weather and placement on the planet contribute largely to the flavor of these coffees when picked ripe and handled properly. So these coffees are selected by cup and then blended together like a Rhone wine or a local honey that comes many fields in a 4 mile radius.
