Time to get on and get these lovely new colombian coffees added to the site. Each diverse and different to each other, with one thing in common, very very tasty.
This is one of the larger lots but still only just over 3 bags (we have one thats just 35kg). Each one was selected from the cupping table blind and with no bias.
You can buy it here
This is another of the coffees to come from my trip to Colombia in September, and comes from the tinniest of lots. All these coffees were bought on the cupping table on their taste and cup profile, and the information built up afterwards.
Grown in the heart of the department of Tolima, located in the Andean region, in the center-west of the country and can be found to the north of the more famous (at least in Has Bean coffee Land) by the department of Huila.
This farm is in the Los Nevados national park, with the closest town to here being el Vergel and sits at an altitude of 1750 metres above sea level. Owned by Jose a Cruz and his wife Silvia and their 5 children, this farm covers just 7 hectares which is quite big for colombia but quite small in the grand scheme of things.
In the cup this starts off with a silky mouthfeel, but develops into a crisper cup with an acidity I can only liken to a white wine. This white grape also has hints of melon and a light crisp cider. Sharp and clean aftertaste
