La Union is a small town deep in Southern Colombia that sits at an extremely high altitude. Coffee producers in the area
generally work on fairly small farms (most around 1 hectare in size) and deliver their coffee to centralized warehouses for sale.
This Excelso is a regional blend from local coffee-producing families in La Union, many of whom provide smaller micro lots as well.
Coffee in this lot undergoes a 14 to 16-hour fermentation process at the wet mill before being set out on parabolic beds for
drying. The resulting cup profile is clean, sweet, and complex.
This coffee presents exceptionally balanced flavor at medium roast. The prominent notes are of milk chocolate, orange, cherry and cane sugar, and we’ve roasted this just far enough to balance all the wonderful sweetness this Colombia offers and just light enough to keep the “roasty” flavors out of the cup.
