Vanilla · Lime · Maple

Last year we had the opportunity to travel to Colombia in search of great coffee from the region of Cauca. The first official Climpson’s origin trip took us on a two week trip of epic proportions, with the first stop being the Cauca Best Cup Competition and Auction in Popayan, Colombia. For us here at Climpson & Sons, it was a great opportunity to understand the subtleties of the Cauca region, meet the producers, as well as lay claim to our favourite coffees to bring back to the roastery!
Only just missing out on the Top 10, from the 500+ submissions, but by no means any less exceptional, we got to bring home the Cauca Best Cup Micro lot Runner-up, Alexander Bermudez from Finca El Paraiso in Tunia. It was a great result alongside our other win, Benito Rosero from Finca El Pino the #8 micro lot winner.

Alexander Bermudez’s coffee holds the traditional cup profile of Cauca coffees, think delicate florals, syrupy sweetness and tropical fruits. The proximity to the equator along with the regions stable seasons and terroir means the cup makes for a high acidity, medium body and caramel-like profile. Bermudez’s coffee has a very clean, fresh and creamy mouthfeel. Notes of vanilla, lime and maple are distinct with subtleties of peach and rose coming through.
