This coffee has a lovely almond and pear character which is very smooth and creamy. There is a good, bold body with a very soft acidity and rich finish. It's a really smooth, easy drinker that lends itself excellently to Espresso coffee.
This Colombia Santa Marta Women's Cooperative is a small cooperative run by around 22 women in the Santander department of Colombia, near to the town of Aratoca. The department of Santander extends over Colombia's eastern Andes range, close to the border with Venezuela. The region is known for it's coffee growing and conditions for coffees with good body & lower acidity, which this coffee perfectly displays. The coffee is grown at around 1600 - 1900 m.a.s.l. Coffee cultivation takes place under a shade canopy, this is important to protect the coffee tree and soil from the sun, ensuring that the coffee cherry can ripen slower and more evenly at the cooler temperature.
The Women's cooperative have a great respect for the ecosystem and diversity of flora & fauna, making sure that their Cooperative is run as an Organic coffee producer.
