This rich, complex coffee presents aromas of sugarcane and hazelnut, opening up into flavor notes of caramel and almonds. Balanced and silky, sugar cane molasses lingers in the finish.
High in the green central Andes (Cordillera Central) where the mountains scrape the sky, we find El Placer, the coffee farm of Jose E. Medina. The Medinas have owned El Placer for 15 years, following a traditional Colombian wet process, fermenting their coffee for about 14 hours, then sun drying.
Jose is committed to sustainability, significantly reducing water consumption in the coffee process through the adoption of new technology, and has earned the coveted UTZ and Rainforest Alliance certifications for his coffee. In addition, Jose follows socially responsible practices, continually working to improve labor conditions for his employees.
