The Department of Huila, Colombia has everything going for it from rich soil, high altitude, highly organized processing stations, and a climate seemingly made for growing coffee. Timana is a sub-region within Huila located between two branches of the Andes, thusly providing a special slice of geography ideal for growing coffee.
This coffee was produced by small farmers at altitude ranging from 1600 – 1900 masl. Farmers pick their coffee at full ripeness, and transport it to a centralized processing station in the town of Timana where the coffee goes through sorting, blending, and washed processing.
This is our first 2019 crop Colombian coffee and we couldn’t be more pleased with what we find in the cup. This is a nuanced, complex coffee with plum, nectarine, orange, blackberry, and deep milk chocolate. It is both approachable and refined, delicate and heavy – very well balanced. You should definitely give it a try.
