Colombia, Caturra, Castillo
Blackberry, Apricot, Caramel
Collaborative Coffee Source
In 2018, we traveled to Colombia to participate in the Acevedo Cup, a competition hosted by one of our fave exporters, Fairfield Trading, and fave importers, Collaborative Coffee Source. We had our socks knocked off by Carlos Calderon's coffee, which ended up placing third. This year, 2019, we once again participated in the Acevedo Cup and once again loved Carlos's coffee. This year he placed fifth with a wicked juicy coffee full of blackberry, stonefruit, and rich caramel. Carlos grows Colombia, Castillo, and Caturra at his farm, Finca El Porvenir, at almost 1700 masl. His wife, Gloria Silva, is also a coffee grower and we are stoked to be offering her coffee as well this year.
All of our coffees are roasted to order and shipped as whole beans. We roast on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and ship out the following day. Orders are roasted based on demand. Thanks!
