Bright and tangy!! This microlot really tastes like a bright, sweet, tomato basil soup. The tomato note is a bit less prominent than it is in some really tomato-ey Kenyans. We are tasting some juicy fruit notes like pomegranate too. The herbaceous character is really beautiful; we often find that lower quality Colombians have this herbaceous character (it's really one of the classic characteristics of the Colombian terroir) but don't have enough sweetness and acidity to balance it. This lot is super bright and super sweet - we really can't emphasize enough how much we like this one.

From our importer:

"Finca El Eden is located in Garzon, Huila, Colombia and run by Hugo Gonzalez. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,850 m.a.s.l. and consists of 3 hectares in coffee. Of those 3 hectares, Hugo currently has 9,000 trees of Variedad Colombia, Caturra and Castillo in production. The coffee is de-pulped and then fermented for between 36 and 42 hours, mostly a dry ferment, but with some water in the tank. After washing, the coffee is dried on raised African beds in a parabolic dryer for anywhere from 20-30 days, depending on the weather conditions. We met Hugo through Alberto, our Head of Quality in the Huila Region, who also happens to be from Garzon and has known Hugo for years, working closely with him to help improve cup quality. In addition, Hugo is the President of a local association of growers called GAFRUCOL, whom we hope to start working closely with this year. This is our second year working with Hugo and we look forward to future harvests of his, as well as members of the association and as soon as the pandemic passes, the opportunity to finally visit him and the entire group."
