Getting product details...

From Artisan Roast:

An exclusive micro-lot from Cauca in the deep south of Colombia. Bursting with flavours of blackberry, peach and mandarin orange it dribbles onto a light muscovado sweetness and scores with underlying dried fig syrupyness on the finish.

Coffee farms in Colombia are small operations, family orientated and usually only one or two hectares in size. In the past, neighbouring farms pooled their harvests into larger bulked lots - the coffees were still great and were the building blocks of Colombia's reputation for delicious, consistent coffee, yet the farmers missed out on recognition. Because producers also typically process their own coffee it meant the coffee world also missed out on truly unique and delicious flavour distinctions resulting from variations in terroir and post harvest processing techniques.

Artisan Roast are working with our export partner in Colombia to give these small farmers more visibility and recognition for their coffee. The sizes of coffee purchases we make will vary, but are all small, more a nano-lot than a micro-lot, and this means farms will come and go off the menu over time, sometimes staying for only a few weeks.

Uniqueness in post harvest fermentation is what first sparked interest in this nano-lot from finca El Triunfo in Cauca. Owner, Braulio has been working over the last fifteen years to make better and better speciality coffee. His fermentation times have increased from the typical range in Colombia of fifteen or sixteen hours up to twenty five hours. This has been central to making this a supreme example of a fruit forward coffee from Southern Colombia. With his farm sitting at 2000 metres above sea level in the mountains that separate Huila and Cauca these times are also necessary, with cooler nights slowing down microbiological activity in the fermentation.

Bold flavours of blackberry and peach are supported by secondary flavours of mandarin orange and dried fig. These characteristics are supported by a light muscovado sweetness and viscous syrup like mouthfeel. The medium intensity orange and red grape acidity provides structure and complexity to the brew. Through milk, a butterscotch sweetness and subtle hints of pomegranate emerge.
