A Honey Processed Coffee with Ubiquitous Sweetness

This coffee is “honey” processed where the cherries are pulped, but the mucilage is left intact. In the case of this coffee, a fair amount of is left intact which results in a distinctly fruity cup profile. The varieties are mixed Caturra and Castillo.  

Grateful that the work of InConexus has brought this coffee to market, we are happy to partner with them again to bring it into our roasteries.

INGREDIENTS: 100% Arabica Coffee Beans

ROASTER'S NOTES:

“Quillacingas” refers to an Indigenous group that has a long history within the Nariño region of southern Colombia. They trace their roots back to the Peruvian Incas and consisted of nomad warriors that stayed independent in the high elevations of the Andes for generations. However, by the end of the 19th century they began commercializing their agricultural products, one of which was coffee. Later, they pursued technical assistance from the Colombian government to improve both quality and capacity, as well as received agronomic support from InConexus, an organization supporting coffee-growing communities in Colombia. Grateful that the work of InConexus has brought this coffee to market, we are happy to partner with them again to bring it into our roasteries.

CUP CHARACTERISTICS:

The coffee leans more toward the natural side of processing, with a silky mouthfeel and overall fruit-forward cup profile. We find flavors of mixed dark berries and lavender. The body is heavy with a ubiquitous sweetness and, as it cools, a more floral complexity begins to shine.

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