<p>Ananias Silvestre's Finca Bellavista sits at about 1900m above the Magdalena river valley in Huila, Colombia. Ananias' father left a parcel of land to each of his sons 12 years ago, and Ananias has been farming coffee on his parcel ever since. He has done multiple plantings of Caturra varietals, and is seeing new cherry on his oldest plants after his first round of stumping. Ananias and his family do almost all of the picking and processing themselves, relying on additional labor only during peak season, and they have built up a reputation for quality. Ananias was nominated by his 100+ member coffee-growing cooperative for their premium program, which granted him additional funds to improve and refine his processing and drying facilities.  </p>
<p>
This lot from Bellavista shows all the care that Ananias puts into producing excellent beans by way of nuanced, delicate flavors. A juicy peach note provides sweetness and fills out the body, and a light, creamy nougat taste gives the cup complexity and a unique feel. We also picked up on some light floral qualities, which is always a treat in high-quality Colombian coffees. We love when the care of the farmer shines through in the final cup, and that's definitely the case here. Drink up and enjoy!

Rewarding and well-rounded

It's not the usual flavor profile I seek out and I wasn't sure about this one after the first few sips, but once it cooled down a couple minutes WOW! It was like a peach flavored tootsie pop. Just the right amount of tartness to keep you wanting more. Definitely one of the best Colombian coffees I've had so far and a very nice surprise!

Very well balanced

Columbia consistently delivers the best coffees.

Bellavista Colombian

Colombian coffees are always great, but I didn't find this one to be inspiring, only ok. But maybe that's because the previous coffee that came from Moustache was so unique and tasty. You can't hit a home run every time.
