COLOMBIA ANTIOQUIA ORGANIC: MEDIUM ROAST
Flavor notes: milk chocolate, caramel, dried cherry, grape, orange
This certified organic coffee from Colombia’s Antioquia department offers a sweet, clean cup with medium body, medium acidity, and tasting notes of milk chocolate, caramel, dried fruit and hints of citrus. Grown by smallholders at altitudes ranging from 1650 – 2200 meters above sea level, this blend of Castillo, Caturra and Typica coffee varietals was fully washed, sundried and sorted to minimize defects.
Colombian green coffee production began in Antioquia. The region dominated and was where the Federacíon Nacional de Cafeteros (FNC) was established in 1920. Today, Antioquia is the second largest coffee-producing region in Colombia after Huila. The region represents an estimated 16% of the country’s massive coffee output.
Antioquia is characterized by hills and valleys along the slopes of the Andes. The climate is stable year-round, with warmer valleys and cooler mountains, contributing to a pleasant cup profile that includes sweet, spicy, nutty, and fruity notes.
