Artisan Roast - Primavera Colombia - Washed

Not available

Getting product details...

Limited release micro lot exclusive to Artisan Roast. Sweet, succulent flavours of orange, apricot jam and vanilla lead onto a refined and juicy finish.

From Artisan Roast:

"The dramatic and lush green rolling hills of the region of Huila in the south west of Colombia are home to some truly amazing coffees. They are also home to some amazing small farmers, who until recently remained somewhat anonymous to the coffee world.

The farmers in the region have always been small scale with farms usually only one or two hectares in size. The small volumes of coffee produced on this size of farm are small and in the past small lots of neighbouring farms would have their coffee bulked into larger bulked lots. The coffees were still great and were the building blocks of the reputation Colombia build for delicious, consistent coffee, yet the farmers missed out on recognition.

Artisan roast are working with our export partner in Colombia to give these small farmers more visibility and recognition for their coffee. We are sourcing from a group of around 10 or so farmers in Huila and Cauca, who all produce exemplorary coffee. The sizes of coffee purchases we make will vary, but are very 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.

This micro-lot comes from a farm called Primavera a hour or so drive north from the city of Pitalito. The farm, owned by Alquimedez Tapiero and his family, is planted with the traditional and once almost ubiquitous caturra cultivar and the more recent castillo cultivar. It's a dry fermented washed process coffee and delivers a perfect example of elegant, balanced, delicious Colombian coffee. Flavours of apricot jam, orange with vanilla stand out with an underlying sugar cane sweetness. The mouthfeel is refined, juicy and lingers on the palette beautifully.

Primavera is best brewed in a filter to get the delicious combination of apricot jam and orange flavours with an underlying caramel note running through to the finish. The natural sweetness of the coffee comes through on this brew method along with subtle refined grape like acids.

When the coffee is switched to espresso and aeropress the flavours will become more focused towards caramel and orange citrus. The mouthfeel becomes more dense in both brew methods, becoming more creamy in texture."
