ROASTER'S NOTES:

This offering is from a producing group located in the town of Ataco in the region of Tolima. The group is called Asospac (Association of agricultural producers of Santiago Perez) and has about 57 producing members. Tolima is still a relatively new and developing area in the Colombian coffee landscape. Producers are dimunitive and open to newer varieties and processing techniques. Colombia was hit very hard by leaf rust in the mid-1980s. At that time, Cenicafe, a Colombian coffee research institute, set to work developing rust-resistant coffee varieties. The Castillo variety is a result of that research. While some wondered if the potential cup quality of these varieties would be compromised, blind taste testing proved those critics wrong.

ROAST PROFILE:


CUP CHARACTERISTICS:

This fully washed coffee is grown at high altitudes. As a result, it ripens slowly and has a very dense bean or seed. Because of this it lends itself well to a more developed roast profile and displays the characteristics we love in a darker roast profile. In this complex cup, we find flavors of black cherry layered with toffee. The coffee is sweet and full-bodied and has a hazelnut-like finish. 

ORIGIN:


RECOMMENDED BREW METHODS:
  • 17g of coffee / 1g of water (adj. to desired brew strength)

We pay farmers fairly and build relationships that last decades. More than 30 years of experience means we have an abundance of relationships with coffee producers that grant us access to the best coffee beans in the world.
