We Taste 

Fresh, juicy red fruits like strawberry, watermelon, and sweet cherry pair exceptionally well with this offering's rich, fudge-like body. This is a very balanced cup with a captivating complexity that can be appreciated by just about anyone. Super sweet, super juicy, and the acidity still shines through in just the right moments.

Processing Info

Resting on the bottom of a steep and profoundly beautiful single hectare of forest farm you’ll
find the Liz-Andela family’s home. It faces outward over their community in a small plateau of the southern Andes mountains range in the Cauca department of Colombia. Their parcel of land forms a part of the Togoima Indigenous Reservation of the Nasa People, of which they are proud members.

Don Isidro and Doña Ana had been coffee farming for years before switching to cattle in 2010. When their son, Ervin, decided to dedicate himself to the traditional family business, it was decided to return to coffee in 2017. We are unbelievably happy that they decided to do this, and we are frequently impressed by the quality of their coffees.

Their organic farm consists of Yellow Bourbon, Caturra, and Yello Tabi varieties which are accompanied by copious plantain, guamo, citrus, and guadua trees for shade and sits between 1800 and 200masl. They process their coffees as honeys or semiwashed, using methods traditional to the area and very little water. They are only now experimenting with both natural processing and additional fermentations. The flavour profiles found here vary greatly by variety but all show stunning complexity and character in body and sweetness.
