This bright cup leads with a green apple acidity, followed by sweet and consistent vanilla throughout. You’ll notice layers of sweetness in the finish in this structured cup. This coffee has cascara-like tartness as it cools and florality in the nose. Before taking the first sip, look for those aromatics.

Antioquian is one of the northernmost coffee-producing departments in Colombia. Their coffee history dates back nearly 180 years. This region is where coffee production began and still produces the largest amount of coffee grown annually today.
The Urrao region of Antioquia is unique and the quality coming out of here has been exceptional. In the Valle de Pavón, farmers are blessed with ideal conditions for growing coffee. The extremely high altitudes, ranging from 1800 meters in the valley floor, up to 2100 meters, regular rainfall, and the perfect temperature ranges help create this amazing coffee.
This lot of heirloom Caturra is made up of components from several smallholder farmers in the region. The coffee was wet-processed, fermented overnight, and dried on raised, covered beds. This heirloom cultivar adds another layer of uniqueness that makes this coffee extra special. Caturra’s elongated and narrow cherries look similar to Typica but boast floral qualities and fruit-forward flavors.
I drink a lot of different coffees always looking for something new and better. I found it in the Valle de Pavon. It is bright and full of different and wonderful flavors. Lots of citrus without being tart. In fact, it is so fantastic I almost immediately ordered another bag so I would not run out.
We order about every few weeks, some single and always The 1950's blend. My only wish is that when it is natural they would put it in big bold letters. Other than that, this coffee rocks...
