Clifton Coffee - Colombia: Luis Alejandro Ortega Lot #2

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

This is a complex coffee and in the cup look for a clean grape-like acidity, flavours of ripe pears, honeydew melon, passion fruit, pistachio & demerara sugar with a syrupy body.

From Clifton Coffee:

"Yet another outstanding offering from Colombia, this time from Huila. This microlot is part of a special project run by Nordic Approach with the help of Cooperative Coocentral - a professional cooperative dedicated to cultivating the highest possible quality & standard of living for its 3500 members.

The cooperative employs agronomists & technical engineers that work with producers that have been identified for their commitment and potential to help ensure each harvest continues to improve and Luis A. Ortega is one of 70 producers that have been identified by Nordic Approach to help build this particular project that focusses on those exceptional up & coming farmers with the best quality coffee.

The bourbon varietal gives this coffee a delicious sweetness with a more typically rounded body compared to the Ignacio Quintero for example."
