Recommended Roast Level:
This award-winning coffee is an example of the excellence that can come from Colombia. When we tasted this bean for the first time, we were blown away by the sugary mouthfeel and full body. The caramelized sweetness adds the perfect richness and pairs beautifully with the juicy notes of blackberry. We made this coffee a Black Label because it embodies everything that is unique to the country: complexity and boldness in a smooth cup. There is a very limited
amount so buy quickly. You do not want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind coffee!
Finca La Soledad Coffee Production:
Elpidio Arboleda Tabares owns an 8-hectare farm in Urrao, Antioquia, where he has 1.5 hectares of coffee planted. His annual production is around 25 bags. The coffees on La Soledad are harvested ripe and processed in an interesting way: Elpidio de-pulps and ferments his coffee in batches, mixing the freshly de-pulped loads with coffee that has already fermented. The total fermentation time is 72 hours. After washing the coffees clean of mucilage, the seeds are dried in rooftop dryers under the sun.
This coffee won 10th place in the Land of Diversity cupping competition and auction arranged by the National Federation of Coffee Growers in late 2020.
