About this coffee :
The Colombian Popayan coffee is a superb microlot bean grown in the lush mountain ranges of Popayan, the capital city of the state of Cauca. The region boasts many small coffee farms, of mostly less than 5 hectares, which produce an amazing array of coffees.
The two rainy seasons in the Popayan plateau produce a main crop and a mid-crop, meaning fresh coffee is being produced all year round.
The altitude of around 1600 metres above sea level, combined with the rich volcanic soil from neighbouring Purace volcano provide perfect conditions for typica and caturra varietals to grow under the lush shade of avocado and plantain trees.
After picking, the farmers in these areas wash and ferment the beans for around 10 hours, which produces a sweet and aromatic coffee. The beans are then sun-dried on covered raised beds and taken to the community depot to be selected and cupped.
This is a bold and smooth cup of coffee. You'll get upfront chocolate notes on the first sip, hints of fruitiness and light roasted almond nuttiness. Definitely a coffee you look for in the morning!
