This traceable community blend with a vibrant regional profile comes from an association of 22 producers with small farms in the municipality of Rovira within the department of Tolima. Each of the associations 22 producers has their own micro-mill where they carefully harvest cherries, depulp, ferment, wash and gently dry the parchment on raised beds. Imagine the harmony between these producers in farm management and post-harvest practices to achieve a clean and consistent blend. But also just enough differences from farm to farm to create a rich complexity of flavors. And then imaging all the crucial logistical demands for things like warehousing and milling coffee for export before this coffee reached the international market. Roasted to a medium level, this coffee has a mellow acidity and a rich chocolate sweetness, with nutty undertones.
