Our first coffee from the famed Nariño region, this is our first purchase from a new relationship we’ve established with an regional dry mill in Medellín. Tierra Cafetera is known for having one of the most state of the art processing facilities anywhere Colombia, resulting in near perfectly sorted coffees that make roasters happy because of their lack of blemishes.
This specific coffee comes from Finca Leche y Miel (Milk and Honey Farm), owned by Ana Isabel Cálad. Ms. Cálad purchased this property five years ago after transitioning out of a previous career. This small harvest is exciting as it represents the first viable production Ms. Cálad has seen on her four-year-old trees, 12,000 in total, which are planted at 2,100 meters and interspersed with orange, banana, papaya, lemon and mango trees.
The cherries are harvested by hand, selected at the edge of overripe, which seems to work best with the Colombia variety of bean that dominates the farm. The beans are sundried for two days before being transferred to protected raised beds in a green house.
You’ll find this coffee will sparkle in the cup with classic, clean citrus notes on top of a base of sweet chocolate. As is typical with a lot of our coffees, you’ll find an exciting element of body, which we liken to cherry pie filling. Great as espresso, hot or cold brew.
