This bright, modern Colombian coffee comes from Palestina, in the municipality of Huila, and demonstrates some very unique flavors compared to the ‘classic Colombian’ flavor profile. This coffee delights the pallet with a burst of pineapple and yellow kiwi, and rolls into a sweet, floral finish that reminds us of clover honey.
Brought to us by our friends at La Real Expedición Botánica (LaREB), the same Colombian collective that brought us Yoiner Mosquera, Mustafa Decaf and others, LaREB brings together small producers from various regions throughout Colombia. From a sourcing philosophy, the work of LaREB falls right in line with our goal of transparency, quality, and relationship, and we are honored to have a chance to work with these amazing people.
This lot was grown at an elevation of around 1680 MASL and is fully washed. The cherries ae picked over-ripe, rested in husk for 12 hours and open fermented for 48 hours before going in the greenhouses to dry for 15 days. This is our first harvest working with Hermer, and we really like what we see so far.
