Notes from Slightly Coffee Roasters:
Flavor notes: Plum Jam, Filbert, Demerara Sugar
This is a delicious coffee from the El Deseo farm in Huila, Colombia. Jarlis saved his Castillo varietal for our partners in Colombia and we think it’s great! This is one of those coffees that can satisfy almost anyone. It’s sweet, and has lots of fruit but isn’t overwhelming with acidity; surely to become a favorite everyday coffee for us.
Notes from our sourcing partner:
Location: La Plata, Huila, Colombia
Altitude: 1700 meters
This is a single farmer lot.
This coffee from Finca El Deseo, among several others from Paicol is part of a new "project" we hope to develop over time. We cupped through a huge amount of tiny lots from Huila blindly with our exporter. There was a range of coffees that stood out from the others and they were all from this region. We went there to visit and it's clear that there is huge potential in this under sourced region. The farmers are producing tiny amounts of high quality as they don't have the market yet. But as soon as they find someone interested they are ready to increase and invest. Cadefihuila is also very supportive in establishing a formal program with these producers.
