Nectarine , panela sugar, and lime
In the cup: Aromats of fresh citrus pave the way to notes of blonde sugar. A medium to light body espresso that finishes up with notes of crisp shortbread.
The producer: Albeiro Gomez is a small producer from Buesaco, operating his farm with the help and support of his wife. Together they employ a very strict selective picking standard that really translates to the cup in a big way.
Varietal: This microlot is 100% Caturra, a natural mutation of the varietal Bourbon which was first discovered on a plantation in Minas Gerais, Brazil between 1915 and 1918. Caturra has a natural single gene mutation that causes the plant to grow smaller. From about 1937 breeders become interested in Caturra for this smaller size—which allowed more plants to be grown closer together— and for its closely spaced secondary branches—which allow it to produce more fruit for the same amount of space. So these qualities, combined with its tremendous in-cup credentials (aka deliciousness) make no question as to why Caturra is one of the most economically important coffees in Colombia and the benchmark to which new cultivars are tested.
