We're excited to have a new fun fresh crop Colombian coffee in the lineup.  This coffee is very approachable while still having the sweet fruitiness that we seek out in all of our coffees.  Some of our tasting notes on this coffee (in no particular order!):

  • Sweet chocolate, light red apples, caramel, creamy, clean, fresh, watermelon, yum.

Our importer decided to pursue coffees grown in the highlands around Giraldo because they were already familiar with the quality of the lots grown around Salgar (the closet big city is Medellin, 77 miles or 124km away). The advantage of sourcing production in the Giraldo region is a closer relationship with the farmers, insuring the quality of the green coffee as it is processed, sampled, and sold.

Café Giraldo is strictly highland grown Colombian coffee. Farms are situated at an average elevation of 1,700 to 2,220 meters above sea level, with small farm sizes of 0.5 to 2 hectares in part due to terrain. The town of Giraldo itself is on a steep mountainside with breathtaking views of the Cauca river and surrounding valleys.  The microclimate in this region means temperate day temperatures with cooler nights allowing for sweetness to really blossom in the coffee cherries.
