From Our Cupping Lab:

This was a very fun coffee to dial in. The sweetness that this coffee presented was the first thing we noticed at the table. Followed closely by a delicate and growing flavor of lavender, rose, and chamomile. Persisting alongside but never stealing the spotlight is a vibrant green apple-like acidity, though the flavor of green apple did not show itself in a dominant manner like we usually find in coffees where its present. Overall a round, juicy, and aromatic cup that is just a pleasure on a sunny mid-day. It will be our roasters cup of choice before baseball on saturday.

From our Importer: Cafe Imports

This Colombian offering comes from contributions of multiple smallholder farmers that reside in the areas surrounding the town of San Agustín, Huila. In this specific region of Colombia, the average farm size is about 2.5 hectares. This equates to about 12,000 trees per farmer; and, if all goes well with harvest and processing, an average of 0.7 kilograms of exportable green coffee per tree, per year. After accounting for defects and all lower-quality beans, the average farmer in San Agustín is producing about 15–25 bags of exportable coffee per hectare, per year. As for which bags pass the quality control inspections and are accepted into microlot offerings—this number is rather small.

This offering is just that: the top tier of quality from multiple smallholding producers. It has been cupped, vetted, and blended together to produce a regional offering that allows more farmers to receive more payment for better-quality coffee.
