Colombia La Albania

Cupping notes

Chocolate, cherry cola, caramel. Creamy mouthfeel and great balance.

Description

The owner of the farm, Israel, also runs the Racafe dry mill in Armenia who exports his coffee. He has been working there for over 2 decades and certainly knows his (green) beans. Coffee is a passion of his, but not his only passion. He is also an avid collector of turkeys and currently has 32 that roam the farm!

Coffee runs in the family and Israel’s son Juan Pablo runs the La Albania farm on a day to day basis. They have custom built accommodation and dining areas to keep the pickers fit and healthy. There is an on-site cook who knocks up lovely Colombian food everyday to satisfy their large appetites! Aside from coffee, he has a great deal of plantain on the farm which fetches good prices in the local market.

Israel typically ferments his coffee for 18 hours and then mechanically dries his coffee at a temperature of 45-50 degrees. Processing is done on the farm, as is common in Colombia.
