Fragrant pineapple, lime citrus, and nectarine lead into salted toffee, brown sugar, and subtle florals along with sweet honeydew melon. As it cools, tangy acidity increases in sweetness reminiscent of juicy pear with hints of plum, supported by round, velvety body.

Meet Smallholder producers

Colombia is famous for its coffee. Not only have Juan Valdez ads made it a household word, the incredible terroir of each region and microregion have contributed to its fame. This particular coffee represents the combined efforts of many smallholder farmers in the Cauca region. They’ve cultivated their trees and painstakingly picked only the ripest cherries for each lot. Often, however, the yeilds are small enough that on their own, they do not have enough to market separately.

But combined, the flavor of the land, complex acidity and heightened florality born of high altitudes and slow ripening cause this coffee to shine. The farmers around Inzá are proud to create this distinct offering together.

Cauca, Colombia

The Cauca region in the south-western part of the country faces the Pacific Ocean where daily temperatures range from close to 11 degrees centigrade (51 F) by night and 18 degrees centigrade (64 F) by day. These temperature variations alter the rhythm of ripening, giving the coffee the higher acidity levels, distinctive sweet notes, and particular caramelized fragrance for which the region is known.

Here the great Andes mountains split into Cordilleras (parallel mountain ranges): Cordillera Occidental, Cordillera Centro – Oriental, and 70% of Colombia’s safe water springs the high, cold mountains and brutally rugged terrain. One of these rivers, the Cauca, lends its name to the region.

The people here--descendents of Guambiana(Misak), Páez (Nasa), Yanacona, Coconucos and other first-nation peoples as well as Europeans, are resilient and hard working, and it is their efforts that have made Cauca the rich agricultural region that it is today.
