Columbia Cauca Women's Association (Limited Supply)
This coffee was grown by 244 members of a producer association called Association de Mujeres Caficuitoras del Cauca. These women live and grow coffee in and around the cities of Balboa, Cajibio, Caldono, El Tembo, Florence, and many more small cities, each within the department of Cauca.
One amazing thing about this Columbia coffee is that most smallholders process coffee themselves with an unmatched degree of expertise, adding significant value to their crop.
The Columbia Cauca is considered a killer coffee!!
Here's the long version: This is a wild coffee; At lighter roasts, the coffee is a zinger: grapefruit and kiwi shine through a nougat like sweetness with support from flavors like plum, golden raisin, and light herbs. A slightly darker roast thrown into the mix yielded a sweet pineapple top note underscored by lime zest, pine, black cherry, and nutmeg. A versatile coffee to say the least.
