Classic: Madrid #2
Variety: Caturra, Castillo
Origin: Giganta, Huila, Colombia
Producers: Danillo Falla
This coffee is from producer Danillo Falla, whose farm is a member of the Coocentral cooperative in Huila. Coocentral is continuing their smallholder project with Nordic Approach to improve the livelihoods of the producers in the area while featuring smaller lots, and it's been fun to see the Coocentral coffees get more delicious year after year. The project helps pass on all sorts of resources to smaller farmers that aren't always available,things like health insurance and family educational support, and more coffee-specific items like direct premium payments for quality cherry and a fertilizer bonus program. We're happy to work with folks like Nordic Approach and Coocentral - and the coffees being this delicious makes it an easy choice!
We love these washed coffees from Huila - they’re almost always super sweet and clean with excellent cup clarity. This particular lot is a Caturra/Castillo mix, and we're getting some crisp apple flavors along with some berry sweetness and even a subtle minty note. We’re excited to introduce this one to the club, we think it'll be a popular choice!

This coffee was a good, well-roasted light coffee. I've never had a coffee arrive so fresh that I had to wait to drink it. I'm impressed with the quality and excellence of the coffee.

Haha, glad to hear. We're relatively sure we invented the "drink after" date several years back! Some of the coffees do even better after 5-6 days of rest, but 3 is the minimum we recommend, which works well with usual shipping times. Glad you enjoyed the beans!
