Carlos Calderon (Huila, Colombia)
Watermelon, Marshmallow, Grape Candy
Collaborative Coffee Source
Drum roll please…. We’re stoked to present the 3rd place winner from the second annual Acevedo Cup! This past January we had the honor and pleasure of participating in the Acevedo Cup, a quality competition held by Oslo-based importer Collaborative Coffee Source and Colombian exporting company Fairfield Trading. The Cup brought together the most impressive coffee farmers of the Acevedo region of Huila in a celebration of their skills and hard work. We spent several days cupping the best of the best from this special little micro-region in Huila and were blown away by the quality and complexity of the top lots. I was especially blown away by this coffee from Carlos Calderon which ended up placing 3rd with a score of 88.44, just .06 points behind 2nd place and .5 points behind first. I LOVED this coffee. It was SO juicy, with lemon candy and watermelon acidity, with the rounded sweetness of marshmallow and butterscotch and complex pineapple and floral notes. Dude.
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!
