Description: This lot comes from a group of producers in a mountain range 95km west of Antioquia. Farming relatively small plots of land, between 1 and 1.5 hectares, these producers take pride in the quality of their coffee which comes from not only quality driven practices, but also the very high elevation. This high elevation is also the source of the groups name, Cafe Exótico de Altura, a subdivision for the high elevation farms who are part of the Cooperativa de Caficultores Del Occidente de Antioquia.
We visited the leader of this group in 2019 and we were very impressed with his determination to produce the highest quality coffee possible through growing practices and improving processing techniques. They provide education and training as well as subsidize the cost of raised beds for producers, which makes for more uniform drying.
Our team really enjoyed this one on the cupping table. It’s got lots of sweetness with notes of Caramel, Milk Chocolate, and Marshmallow and hints of fruitiness with the flavors of Cherry and Lime.
