Region: Laguna, San Andres, Santander
Altitude: 5900 Ft ( 1800 masl)
Varieties: Bourbon, Colombia 6
Processing: Red Honey
Roasting Level: Medium
Fragrance: Some cherry sweetness and earthy aged oak
Aroma: Notes of milk chocolate and almond with some light tartness (cranberry)
An excellent Colombian coffee to start with. The honey process highlights the acidity for a very rich bodied coffee with a good acidic balance. Strong milk chocolate flavor with slight caramel notes makes this a very special Colombian.
The beans are from a farm in a beautiful location above Laguna near San Andres, Santander. Here they produce the Colombia 6 Bourbon variety that is locally called "cocolyo morado” because of bronze color of new shoots. The black volcanic soil and high altitudes further deepens the flavors and aromas.
We are hand roasting these beans to order in 10lb batches.
