<p>Jaime did it again with this coffee-although a Caturra and Colombia mix, it tastes like it could be a Geisha! It is slim in the body but has winey red fruit and papaya characteristics. La Virgen is owned by Jaime Ariza, but the farm practices and processing is managed by his friend Juan Saldarriaga. Juan is a producer with two farms of his own, La Claudina and El Encanto. He’s also working with friends, managing the production for some surrounding producers with Caturras. La Virgen is part of the Coffee Growers Association, started by Jaun. This is a group of producers in Antioquia who have come together to collaborate on different production methods to create a market for improved coffee from Antioquia. This particular lot comes from a day's production, and because it cupped so distinctively, Nordic decided to keep it as a separate coffee for you to enjoy! The altitudes and growing conditions make it pretty unique. The coffees are picked and sorted before they are pulped and dry fermented for 24 hours with intermediate rinse in clean water. The coffee is dried on raised beds under shade for 22 days. <p/>

We are always excited to get Jaime’s coffee in. This one in particular is rich and complex, with notes of tropical fruit. So many great colombian coffees come through MCC, and La Virgen #2 is no exception. Brew yourself a cup and let the team know what you think!
