Monserrate is a small village that sits on a knife edge of a ridge outside of the town of La Plata in the region of South Huila Colombia. Many small producers in the area pool their coffee together to produce larger lots that receive the “Monserrate” mark.
This offering is one of these “community” lots. Our relationship with the Monserrate producing group started in 2013 when we visited and participated in a local cupping competition and auction. The idea was to incentivize members to improve both quality
and capacity through paying higher prices. Now, 10 years later the group is thriving and with the grace of mother nature, continues to produce excellent quality coffees.
This is a fully washed and sundried offering. The climate is such in Huila that sun drying is indeed possible unlike some other areas of Colombia further north where unpredictable weather patterns and rainfall make mechanical drying necessary.
Colombia does indeed produce some of the finest coffees in the world. This offering is no exception. In the cup we find a complexity of flavors including lemon zest, vanilla, and milk chocolate. The coffee is medium bodied and has a balanced acidity. The finish is sweet, silky, and sure to please. Enjoy!
