This coffee comes to us from the same town as our staple Cafe Giraldo, which comes from elevations ranging from 1,700 - 2,200 masl. This particular lot is from a much smaller plot of land at 2,100 masl and it is our favorite washed Colombian coffee we've tasted this year, including a few Best of Cauca lots. We're tasting lots of red fruit including apples and cherries, plus thick, sweet marzipan. We really can't emphasize enough how sweet this coffee is!

From our importer:

"Finca La Miguela is located in Giraldo, Antioquia, Colombia and run by Silvia Higuita and family. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 2,100 m.a.s.l. and consists of 4 hectares in coffee. Of those 4 hectares, they grow in total 21,000 trees, primarily of Caturra, but also some Castillo and Yellow Bourbon. This lot is comprised primarily of Caturra.

This coffee is a mix of various lots throughout the harvest, with varying fermentation styles. In some lots, the coffee was left in cherry for 12 hours, de-pulped and then dry-fermented for another 36 hours and in other lots, the coffee was de-pulped immediately and then dry-fermented for 48 hours. As both recipes exhibited similar profiles, we decided to put them together into one lot. Upon washing the coffees, they are then taken to dry in a greenhouse-style structure for between 8 and 15 days, depending on the weather.

While this is our first year working with Silvia and family, they are no strangers to high quality coffees and won 1st place in the Best of Antioquia competition in 2015. We met Silvia through the work we are doing in Antioquia, trying to highlight the region as one that can produce as good of specialty as any other in Colombia and Silvia has made our jobs fairly easy! We are excited about future harvests to say the least!"
