Sourcing information: Colombia has always been one of our favorite origins. The coffees that come from there tend to have a classic flavor profile that is rooted in sweetness above all else. This creates a profound accessibility for these coffees, which is why Colombia has been one of the leaders of the specialty coffee market since the beginning.
The Andes Mountain range passes through Colombia like a vein. If you follow it across the whole country you will also follow the best areas for coffee production. The further south you go the closer to the Pacific Ocean you go.
This lot is called Macizo, which refers to a cluster of mountains in the Andes that is centered in Cauca. This group is what makes Cauca and other departments in Southern Colombia the special places they have become. The Colombian Massif (Macizo) has over 350 bodies of water located within its peaks and valleys, creating a diverse growing climate throughout the region.
Macizo is a collection of Caturra lots from Cauca. Many small producers in the area contributed to this lot of coffee. This lot is wet-processed and dried on raised beds.
