Colombia - El Peñol
Altitude: 1950-2100 m
Characteristics: Mild-bodied coffee with notes of caramel, nuts and chocolate with a citrus sweetness. Balanced with a creamy mouthfeel. A superb all rounder!
Further Information: Coffee is picked by the smallholders in the municipality in the same way as across much of the country. Families and neighbours share labour to collect the cherries which are commonly washed and dried on the farm, often at high altitudes on steep slopes, or brought to a nearby beneficiary for processing. It is then brought to the dry mill or cooperative headquarters for cupping, scoring and sorting for export.
