Blackcurrant & Black Tea
Harvest: June 2021
Producer: Giraldo Muňoz
Variety: Castillo & Caturra
Altitude: 1,900 masl
Nariño is located in the far south-west of Colombia bordering Ecuador, and is one of the most challenging, but also most interesting places to work. In contrast to other regions in Colombia, the conditions here can be extremely dry during the harvest time, and humidity in the area can be low. Coffee grows up to 2,200 masl, often on the steep hillsides, in very remote areas. It's these unique growing conditions at high altitudes where we often find the most extraordinary coffees!
This coffee comes from Giraldo Munoz, a smallholder farmer from Nariño, and member of the Café Occidente Cooperative. When we first tasted this coffee, we were surprised and excited that it came from Colombia! There is very little richness, and its juicy blackcurrant acidity is something we would look for in our Kenyan coffees! This is our first time purchasing coffee from Giraldo and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Expect a bright, sweet and fruity cup, with notes of blackcurrant, fresh strawberry and black tea.
