Our third coffee from the famed Nariño region, this is another 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 a farmer by the name of Luis Rodriguez. 97% of Colombian coffee farmers fall into the category of “small-holder”, that is, small-acreage family farms under 5 hectares (roughly 5,000 trees). Compared to other parts of the world (where coffee is farmed like corn in Iowa) this is not a lot, however, for a small family-run operation (who does most of the work by hand), this is a ton of work! Mr. Rodriguez’s farm is 3 hectares, interspersed with banana, plantain, guava, and various citrus trees.
It pays off, however, in the final product. A sweet and clean Nariño, meaning notes of caramel and citrus, with pronounced appearances of chocolate, honey and starfruit. You’ll find this is a great drip coffee, or you could even try cold brewing it.
