Single Origin Coffee Description

This is Carlos' first Caturra crop, grown and hand picked by Carlos and his family on their farm La Ilusion, in Colombia's Nariño region. He planted 4000 Caturra trees in 2016 with the aim of achieving a higher quality cup profile.

After cherries were handpicked and sorted, they were placed in water tanks for 50 hours, then pulped, washed and left to dry on raised beds until ideal moisture content was achieved.

The cup is juicy and sweet upfront with notes of pink grapefruit, yellow peach and milk chocolate in the finish.
