This is our last Colombian coffee of the season, and what an amazing season it has been. In terms of complexity and depth of flavour, this coffee is little short of amazing. I would normally add something like, this will probably be gone within a few weeks, in life before lockdown, however, there is a bright side to this, as there is more chance for some of you to try this delicious coffee. This is another coffee from our friends (John and Claudia) in the field working with micro-producers in the Armenian area of Tolima.

Removing these small farms from the federation’s mass coffee pool is a great thing. Due to the fact that they are producing excellence and giving them oxygen and exposure to their own market in their own right is a fantastic thing to be able to do, as long as we can keep on doing it.
We really hope you enjoy this coffee too.
