    TASTING

    This Colombian coffee makes for an exceptionally sweet cup, filled with intense aromas of toffee and caramel. A subtle taste of nutmeg and vanilla reminds us of chai spices, and accompanies the sugar of this cup wonderfully. The sip dissipates slowly, and you are left most prominently with a slight freshness, very reminiscent of a ripe fig or a tasty red apple.

    DRINKING

    This is a very friendly and versatile coffee. In espresso, the toffee and fig notes are especially enhanced, and will give you a very sweet cortado. For a more balanced experience, throw it in your reliable filter coffee maker and enjoy a comfortably classic coffee!

    ORIGIN

    Colombia holds wonderfully diverse coffee harvests. It is among the highest praised coffee-producing countries for this exact reason. And its most profitable region, by a landslide, is Huila, Colombia. So much Colombian coffee is exported from Huila, it almost makes it difficult to find Colombian coffees from other regions. One of our suppliers has been working very hard the past few years to shine a light on other coffee-producing regions in the country, particularly in El Tablón de Gómez municipality, in Nariño. They’ve worked hand-in-hand with local communities to make the selection process much easier logistically, bringing their sample analysis and cupping lab directly on the grounds of the region. Since 2018, they have been able to consistently and abundantly source great coffees from Nariño, and are working alongside producers to make harvests even better year after year.

    Nariño is an especially highly elevated region of Colombia, which is a very strong advantage when it comes to growing coffee. Elevation tends to enhance complexity and acidity, giving way for some spectacular taste profiles.

    Most farms in El Tablón de Gómez are long-time family farms, handed down with inheritance. They are often no more than 1-2 hectares and produce an average of 1300kg; Nativel Obando’s farm fits exactly this description. The sorting, depulping and drying is done by the producer locally, and the rest of the processing is done at the nearest dry mill. This particular harvest was left to ferment in a dry environment for 16 hours, after which it was dried on patios for 15 days.
