La Cristalina, Colombia

La Cristalina, Colombia, Caldas

Variety: Red Bourbon

Process: Washed

Profile: Melon, lime, tangerine and green tea.

The farm is one of the most technologically advanced farms in Latin America and I have been following them for a long time but could never find a roaster that worked with them, aside from competition lots.  I could not believe my luck when  I called the importer and he told me they had 3 bags the current crop still in Colombia, I roasted a sample they sent me and reserved this coffee before it was shipped.  It is super fresh crop. It was processed at the highest level, amazing producers, the result? A funky, melon, lime, tangerine and green tea acidity.  Sweet, medium bodied, funky yet classy and elegant. A poem!
