From the Roasters:
When choosing our Christmas coffee, we always try to pick something that everyone will love. A coffee that’s balanced, sweet and great for sharing, with flavours that go well with all the other good stuff we consume at this time of year! With help from our friends at Nordic Approach, we’ve sourced this beautiful lot from Orlando Beltran, and we hope you enjoy this festive treat as much as we do!
Orlando owns and manages the farm Pan de Azucar (which translates as ‘Sugar Loaf’) in Garzon, Huila. The farm is 3.5 ha in size, with half a hectare covered in dense forest. This farm is located in a privileged area since the water Orlando uses for processing comes from an aqueduct that carries spring water directly from the mountain range. This coffee has been washed and dried in a parabolic dryer, which looks and functions alot like a greenhouse. We saw a lot of these dryers on our recent trip to Colombia, and they are necessary to protect the beans from the frequent showers that occur in this region. The parabolic dryers are highly effective and experienced producers will ensure they are well ventilated, in order to avoid drying it too quickly. It’s small details like this that really add to the overall cup quality and longevity of the green coffee.
With flavours of nectarine, lemon and chocolate, this coffee is complex, sugary and incredibly moreish - perfect for brewing in bigger batches and for that post-dinner pick-me-up! These beans have been roasted for filter brewing and would suit anyone using a French Press, pour over, Aeropress or drip machine.
