Story: Every August we set out to Colombia to work with our friends at Azahar to find the best microlots from the May-August growing period. Its a complicated process that starts with thousands of samples and by the time we are finished we walk away with the best 10-12 lots. Huila coffee in particular had a very strong showing the year in the cupping table. Our first Colombian coffee of the year is from the municipality of Iquila in Southern Huila. This coffee has a strong panela (Condensed raw Colombian sugar) backbone and beautiful summer fruit reminiscent of watermelon and strawberry and a lovely zip of ginger in the finish.
