Always a crowd-pleaser, Colombian coffee is known for its versatility in brewing. Paired with milk, this coffee still holds its own, though we would definitely recommend appreciating it as a filter brew to discover its more subtle fruit complexities. We aim for a longer development time and a lower drop out temperature in comparison to our other 'classic' roast profiles to strike the perfect balance between this coffee's inherent vibrant acidity and its buttery sweetness.
Rony Gómez, a devoted coffee producer and the owner of El Cedrito Farm for the past two decades, embarked on his journey to uncover the untapped potential of Nariño's coffee production. Initially cultivating only the Caturra variety, he has since expanded to include Castillo and Colombia as well, with plans to introduce more exotic varieties in the future.
Despite facing challenges such as a lack of shade and relatively high humidity and wind during production, the combination of nutrient-rich volcanic ash soil and the unique microclimate created by the canyon-surrounded farm plays a role in shaping the distinct taste of this coffee. In conjunction with diligent processing, this lot is a testament to his unwavering commitment to quality.
