COLOMBIA: El Bombo ORGANIC - Single Origin - 100% Arabica

£7.50



  • We're back to Colombia, land of gutsy little climbers in the world of road cycling, great surnames and big hairdos for this sweet new arrival.

    From a small 5 hectare plot, g rown high on the the slopes of Finca Santa Rosa in the Rosaralda region, this is a lovely medium-bodied castillo varietal and is a pleasure to roast.

    Dark chocolate, toffee, redcurrant notes with a pleasant umami and a syrupy mouthfeel make this a firm favourite with anyone boasting a great palate and those of you who have trouble distinguishing your artisan handmade cacao from a family pack of Twix. Come on, you potty-mouths, get stuck in.

    The Art of Production

    This coffee uses a traditional washed process. Ripe coffee cherries are selected and then pulped to remove the fruit. The coffee is then fermented for 24-36 hours to break down the sugary mucilage and improve the cup. After fermentation the coffee is washed thoroughly to remove the mucilage and then dried in parchment for 10-15 days on patio and raised beds. 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

    El bombo is a small farmers association, constituted 2 years ago but growing under organic practices for 15 years now. Located in Bombo village in Pitalito (South Huila). Asobombo is committed to sustainability, organic farming and high differentiation of coffee.
