<p>Anibal is a second generation coffee farmer, Finca La Palestina has been in his family for 40 years. In addition to planting four types of coffee, he also grows beans, catuca, and plantains. Anibal's farm is in the San Jose de Alto area of Jaen, one of the highest altitude growing areas with near-constant rain, making it a great place for all types of coffee to thrive. He is looking forward to expanding into more unique varietals in the near future - but for now he's seeing great success with the coffee he's already growing, and we can see why: it's incredibly delicious! </p>
<p>
We love the delicate florals and bright, nectarine sweetness that this coffee presents upfront - it's awesome to have a coffee that so clearly exhibits these often difficult-to-isolate traits. Beyond the lighter notes, a cup of La Palestina has a rich, chocolatey backbone that gives the florals and citrus flavors something to contrast with. It's a luscious, decadent brew that definitely tastes fancy. If you're looking to impress a friend, family member, or coworker with a really delicious cup of coffee - we think this might be just the bean for you to flex your brewing skills.

Pretty Good

La Palestina is a well-balanced and interesting coffee with something for everyone - a floral nose, a subtle citric high note layered upon a chocolatey chassis. Flavors aren't quite as robust and strong as I would have preferred, but this is still an enjoyable coffee.
