Getting product details...

From Climpson & Sons:

The coffees from the Colombian region of Antioquia are emerging as some of our favourites with many unique flavour profiles on offer. Last year we roasted a Tabi variety from producer Juan Saldarriaga whilst this Caturra lot comes from his neighbours Hernan and Eugenio Prieto Soto and is roasted to suit all filter brewing methods.

Brothers Hernan and Eugenio Prieto Soto oversee Villa Clabelina, their family farm of more than 50 years, near the small town of Ciudad Bolivar. Set over 22 hectares Villa Clabelina is home to more than 100,000 coffee trees (predominately Caturra and Colombia varieties). With the hill side steeply rising from 1,500 to 1,800 masl all coffee is still picked and sorted by hand, making this a a true labour of love.

The brothers also form part of a local Coffee Growers Association focused on improving their coffee through environmental, social and economically sustainable processes. Sharing resources with their neighbour, Juan Saldarriaga, they have built new processing facilities with the ability to control their washed fermentation and drying times. This is creating almost entirely new flavour profiles with crisp fruit, rhubarb and liquorice far removed from the standard expectation of Colombian coffees.
