OK so we have the decaf version we launched Sunday and I forgot to post about this one the caffeinated brother.
The same information with the decaf stuff striped away. we also have a double pack you can buy here
But this coffee you can buy here
We bought this cup from the cupping table, and sometimes that means we don’t know so much about it.
This is a specially selected micro lot of coffee from the Tolima region. It comes from a small growers cooperative with only 58 members (this lot was made from 16); average farm size is only 4.5 hectares,and collectively produce approximately 1000 bags of coffee per year, so small holders working together to produce this amazing coffee.
This lot was put together by Gilardo Gutirrrez (and his cat), Hernan Arias,Jose Quintero,Daniel Chauala,Gildardo Gutierrez,Elber Falla,Jose Zapata, Benicio Sanchez,Fabio Guembel,Jose Quiceno,Maximo Guitierrez,Nelso Atuesta, Oscar Guitierrez,Luz Mila Rico, Jose Vanegas,Luis Cuartas all part of this cooperative.
Tolima is one of 32 departments in Colombia and sits between the big cities of Bogota (the capital) and Cali. Tolima is a southern department, and the county is Herrera, and the nearest town to the cooperative is Rioblanco. Meridiano is about 79 mi (or 128 km) West of Bogotá,
The varietals are Caturra,Colombia and Typica and is fully washed and grown at altitudes from 1550mtr to 1900mtrs
In the cup its it retains the jammyness but is more doughnut like than jammy dodger of the decaf version. Its like a toned down version cleaner, but less volume of flavour.
