Colombia El Obraje - 12 oz.

This coffee is what we love about a great cup from Colombia. Full body, with rich dark chocolate notes, accented by very delicate grape acidity. Can be enjoyed as a drip, or as an espresso & is delightful in milk-based espresso drinks. A treat to drink any time of the day, any way!

This coffee comes to us from Mr. Pablo Guerrero, who was the first to introduce coffee to the Tangua area outside of the city of Pasto in Colombia's Nariño department. The area was known for its wheat and bean production, but as businesses started to falter Mr. Guerrero saw an opportunity to explore coffee. Originally, his farm, El Obraje, was an apple orchard. At first, he was unsure how the coffee would do in high altitudes; But the coffee flourished and now, other growers are following in his footsteps and moving to coffee production.

Mr. Guerrero's background in architecture leads him to approach coffee from both passionate and pragmatic angles, applying planting and processing strategies designed for long-term farm health. 

Today, the Nariño department of Colombia is home to thousands of smallholder coffee producing families. The region's geography, and in particular Colombia's three ranges of Andean mountains which converge in Nariño, presents ideal altitudes and fertile soil for high grown coffee production.  

Happy drinking!
