Cup Characteristics: Flor del Sur starts with a vibrant, distinct mango taste that is punctuated by a grapefruit acidity and flavor. The cup is full and syrupy like dulce de leche which balances everything on the palate.
Sourcing Information: In the mountainous region of Huila in Southern Colombia, coffee grows with an aptitude rarely found. Lush, coffee-dense hills of the Andes jut straight into the sky. A dozen or more rivers converge in the mountains to give it one of the most unique natural water sources and rainfall patterns in all of Colombia. A county called San Adolfo sits within the municipality of Acevedo. San Adolfo is Southeast of Pitalito and due East of San Agustin. This micro region has yet to see many coffees hit the specialty market.
This lot, that we affectionately named Flor del Sur, is a collection of a handful of farmers extremely hard work preparing some of the finest coffees in the world. Their farms range from 1 hectare to 5 hectares big with outputs of 150 pounds to 1500 pounds. They grow mainly Caturra plants while some farmers have the rust-resistant Castillo and Colombia varieties as well.
Preparation Recommendations: Flor del Sur is loaded with an amazingly juicy body and finish that sparkles with a slightly larger extraction. Aim for 31-33 grams out. The fruits will subside a little in milk, and the rich caramel tones will take over.
