Origin: Narino, Colombia
Producer: Amparo Maya Guerrero
Las Mangas is a farm owned and operated by Amparo Maya Guerrero in Chachagui, southern Narino, Colombia. Amparo is a member of the Café Occidente cooperative, a large coop with over 1600 members and branches in 12 different Colombian municipalities, including several Cup of Excellence winners in the past several years. The coop has established a program with exporters to highlight individual members producing high-quality lots, which is how Las Mangas came in contact with our friends at Nordic Approach. Being in Narino means dealing with lots of rain - so the coffees at Las Mangas are dried under parabolic structures to protect the beans from moisture and keep things consistent.
This lot is a stand-out Colombian with all the right traits of a delicate, washed coffee. We're talking strong jasmine-like florals, juicy peach tones, and even some subtle hints of vanilla. It's a complex coffee that rewards some tinkering - but with flavors this good, we're willing to bet that you'll happily pay it some extra attention while brewing. We're really excited about this coffee at the MCC roastery, and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!
