Getting product details...

Classic Colombian coffee at it's best. Dense brown sugar and hazelnut flavours and a rolling mouthfeel lead onto a juicy tangerine acidity.

The growing region of Cauca in the south west of Colombia with it's lush green rolling hills is regarded as one of the best producing areas in the country, but sourcing from the area has not always been that easy. Times change and small lots of coffees from individual farmers are now becoming available with full traceability.

El Derrumbe was selected from a selection of coffees that were identified during a regional quality competition hosted by an importer. Of the lots we cupped from the competition there was a diverse range of flavour profiles and we plumped on this coffee because it delivered a straight forward delicious example of the type of coffee that made Colombia such a well loved origin. This classic flavour profile owes a lot to the use of a traditional washed process involving a fermentation of the coffee mucilage. This helps accentuate the bright citrus notes that come through the in the cup and preserve the overall clarity when brewing.

The coffee has been roasted to preserve the bright, juicy tangerine acidity and balance this with the sweet aromatics of roasted hazelnuts and caramel. This caramel flavour sits in harmony with a rich brown sugar sweetness that rolls on the palette to a long finish. In terms of brewing we prefer this coffee either as a filter or aeropress, where the zesty tangerine notes come out to the fore with a subtle nut like sweetness.

When do we roast your coffee?

We roast at least every Monday and Wednesday (roasting days). Our cut off for planning orders for roasting is 2pm on a roasting date. If an order is received after this cut off it will be prioritised on the next roasting day. Most items will be dispatched the next day (Tuesday and Thursday). If we cannot deliver the goods within this time we will tell you immediately and agree on another time for delivery. If we cannot agree on another time, we will offer you a refund. We use a range of different roaster sizes so we can batch roast exactly what we need for that day. This means that no coffee will leave our roastery older than the previous working day.
