New Coffee Arrivals: Spotlight On Columbia San Agustin

This season's Colombia San Agustin is yet again one of our favorite single origin coffees. Smooth and balanced, a sip of the coffee hits the tongue with a burst of lively citrus, lemon, lime and grapefruit notes, and then sweetens with notes of apple, grape and fig before finishing into lingering caramel richness. It sounds like candy, but the flavors combine into a truly lovely cup of coffee.

Our favorite coffee growing region is Huila in southern Colombia. About seven years ago, we learned of an association of small farmers near the town of San Agustin in Hulia, the Asociación Los Naranjos. The association helps the farmers improve their crop and, by combining the harvests from many small holdings (in Los Naranjos, the farms only average about 6 acres), is able to negotiate better prices for the processed coffee beans. We're always interested in coffee from co-ops and growers associations, because of the coffee's quality and the co-op's or association's support of small coffee growers. READ MORE...
