Our Colombian coffees are always fantastically versatile suited to all brew methods with their incredible character but balancing body – the character of these lots is unbelievable, with metal filter methods they tend to display a more fudgey profile with hints of lemon peel, on paper filter they can be beautifully buttery with really complex acidity and notes ranging from cherry to red apple to orange. As a coffee origin, Colombia is one of our favourites to work with thanks to the numerous micro-climates throughout the country, we can pretty much buy freshly harvested coffee from the different regions all year round. We generally look to the southern departments of Huila, Cauca, Tolima and Nariño for our supply as we love the flavour profiles from these regions. Throughout the year, the lot name/producer group we are featuring may change to ensure we have the freshest possible offering but you will always get the same high quality, versatile character.
This lot comes to us from one of our favourite departments, Huila, through which runs the infamous Magdalena River.
Huila, like many rural regions in Colombia, has suffered long periods of violence and unrest thanks to ongoing conflicts due to the production of illicit drugs. This group of farmers sought peace and constancy through the production of high quality coffee in an effort to bring about greater social and economic stability.
The town of Timaná is one of the oldest settlements in Colombia and was named for the tribe that originally inhabited the region who fought back against Spanish conquerors. It is beautifully situated in the heart of the Andes mountain range benefitting from water supply from the plentiful surrounding rivers. The coffee grows here under shade trees of plantain and nogal which help to slowly ripen the cherries before they are hand picked and processed on the various micro wet mills in place. The coffee is dry fermented for around 26 hours before being washed and sun dried using raised beds and parabolic dryers to combat the regions humidity and regular rainfall. This process and attention to detail really helps to build complexity in the cup with a juicy character and high natural sweetness.
I have signed up to a subscription with you, when will it be sent out?
Great news! Thanks so much we are excited to have you on board! Your order is now on our system and is usually dispatched between 1-3 working days of us having received it depending on how busy we are! We work so hard to get your order out to you as soon as we possibly can and it will be sent with the Royal Mail 1st Class service.
Are your packages letterbox friendly?
Not currently, we are working on it! There is no signature required for the coffee so if you are not going to be in to receive it, please just include a note for where you would like it leaving and we can include this in our shipping instructions. We know how annoying it is to have to go to the depot to pick up and are working to get a more letterbox friendly option together as soon as we can.
