Getting product details...

Bright and fruity with notes of lychee and apple. This is a very complex coffee with lots of great fruit notes.
This is the first Colombian coffee we've had at the roastery and it's a real knockout! Las Margaritas is part of a group of farms called Granja La Esperanza. They grow many different varietals including Bourbon, Geisha, Typica and Pacamara. These are grown on small sub farms allowing complete traceability back to the individual varietal. They employ 23 people on a full time basis and this increases to 150 at the busiest harvest times during the year. A school enrolment program is available for the children of the workers.

This particular lot comes from the Las Margaritas farm which is planted with the Red Bourbon varietal. This is the same tree type that has been extensively planted in Rwanda and is known for its superb taste characteristics. Unfortunately these trees tend to have a fairly low yield making them less profitable in terms of harvest volume. But, the taste profiles and high cupping scores tend to mean these sell at higher prices so it all works out well in the end. This lot was processed using the honey method. Ultimately what this means is that the bean has had an opportunity to absorb more of the fruit character during processing. The resulting taste is somewhere between a washed and a natural processed coffee and it's a taste that we absolutely love! You can expect bright fruity flavours with complex notes that include apple and lychee. This is definitely one of the most distinctive coffees we've tasted from Colombia.
