COLOMBIA: Las Brisas - ORGANIC MICROLOT - 100% Arabica

£7.75



  • We're always delighted to have a new coffee from Colombia and this newly arrived ORGANIC MICROLOT, is a cracker. It's been cultivated by Ruben Garcia, one of the single-farmers who comprise the ASAPCAFA co-operative.


    Beautifully balanced, with chocolate, bright green apple and red berry notes, this bean is a great all-rounder. Hard not to love, especially on the weekend with a croissant and a cryptic crozzy.

    The Art of Production

    This coffee utilises a modified washed process. Ripe coffee cherries are selected and then pulped to remove the fruit. The coffee then undergoes a 28 hour fermentation, followed by a thorough washing to remove the remnants of the coffee cherry’s sugary mucilage. The coffee is then dried on raised beds for around 30-35 days, a drying process which is unconventional for Colombia and this region. Once the coffee has reached the optimal moisture content it is rested, before being transported to the dry mill for hulling, sorting and grading. It is finally bagged in GrainPro for export.

    The Producers

    Ruben Garcia is one of 78 members of ASOPCAFA, a co-operative association of only 6 years. This coffee comes on the back of collaboration with Olam Specialty, one of a handful of single-farmer microlots which the association has produced this season to diversify their selection, improve quality and ultimately improve prices for their membership.

    The Region

    ASOPCAFA’s members hail from 13 villages around Aipe, Huila, in Colombia’s central Andes. The rolling mountains provide excellent conditions for high quality arabica cultivation, as well as logistical challenges for the region’s producers. The remote location makes access a challenge, to the point that our team
