We're excited to offer this coffee from one of our favorite growing regions in Colombia. The coffees of Huila over the years have truly proven exceptional and this 1,800m grown Caturra from German Peña and his farm El Roblar are no exception. This outstanding coffee is part of our new Limited Roast Pre-order program. These coffees will roast only once every few weeks. All orders placed before the roast date will roast and ship that day.

The best way to convey how wonderful this coffee is is to give you a little look "backstage" during our cupping of this coffee (along with a slew of others). One cupper shouted out, "This coffee is fire!" as soon as they took their first sip.  Another said it felt like this coffee "literally jumped off the table." Tasting notes include all kinds of bright and tropical fruits, like blood orange, grapefruit, and pomegranate. There is also a smooth chocolate backbone to this coffee, so as a pourover, it ends up tasting like a chocolate covered berry or chocolate covered orange, depending on the extraction.

Notes from the importer:

Finca El Roblar is located in Suaza, Huila, Colombia and run by producer German Peña. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,830 m.a.s.l. and consists of 2.5 hectares in coffee. Of those 2.5 hectares, 60% are planted with Caturra, 30% planted with Castillo and another 10% in Variedad Colombia. The coffee is fermented for 20-24 hours and then dried on raised African beds in a parabolic dryer for anywhere from 15-28 days, depending on the weather conditions. German meticulously separates his lots and delivers only the Caturra to the local cooperative as part of their "premium" program.

The cup quality is a clear reflection of the efforts that German puts into producing his coffees and he has already indicated his interest in fermentation experiments to see about improving cup quality in not only his Caturra, but also the other varieties he grows at the finca.
