This coffee is all about range, complexity, and balance. A lovely example of how great Colombian coffee can be.
For the second consecutive season we're very happy to offer Elvia Irene Burbano's coffee from her farm El Chimbo. Irene has a small micro mill on her farm to process her own coffee, allowing for very careful attention to all aspects of this coffee's quality. Most of the farms in this part of Colombia are very, very small so it's really quite remarkable to see the logistics line up to bring in these small lots.
In the cup Elvia Irene's coffee is juicy and fruit-forward, with notes of cherry, orange peel, chocolate-covered almonds. Crisp, lively acidity that dances across the palate with delicate notes of dried fruits. This one is going to sell out fast!
