<p> The high altitudes and abundant water of the Cauca department in Colombia make an ideal location for coffee to grow, but many people there do not want to produce coffee full-time. Instead, many people grow a few coffee plants and have combined their crops to produce this tasty, sweet coffee. A welcome mix of Caturra, Colombia, and Castillo beans were dry fermented for 24 hours before washing and drying on parabolic beds to produce an excellent brew. 
  </p>
<p>
Unlike many more chocolatey coffees from Colombia, Pedregal is bright and fruit-forward. Notes of apricot and strawberry are the most prominent flavors in this cup, while a touch of limeade acidity appears to add a bit of zest and complexity to the cup. Pedregal is everything we look for in specialty coffee: bright, fruity, and excellently produced. We're very glad we get to share it with you, and we hope you share it with people you know that will enjoy it!

Pedregal Colombian

I'm not sure about the fruit descriptors, but this is a good Colombian coffee, with enough chocolate overtones to be tasty.

I really liked this one. I also do not get the fruit descriptors but it tasted very rich and satisfying.

Pedregal Colombia

Really enjoyed this coffee. First coffee I have had where I felt I legitimately tasted one of the fruit descriptors. Brewing w a V60 (45s bloom with subsequent slow single pour and brew time ~2:30) and got absolutely blasted with some apricot on a couple of cups.

Medium-bodied anytime of the day go-to brew. Pleasant.

Smooth tasting, but I didn't catch the flavor notes as described.

Yummy

This coffee is so smooth. I’ve enjoyed it in many forms but AeroPress iced coffee really brings out the fruity flavors (not sure about the ones described).

Pedregal: Apricot, Strawberry, Limeade

It smells like candy when you open the bag. The limeade really came forward as I was grinding the beans. As for tasting notes, it's hard to pin down the original flavors of apricot and strawberry in general without smell. I think the overall idea is that it's a tart, somewhat sweet, full-bodied coffee with a clean finish. It took a smaller grind for my Aeropress and/or longer brewing time to get it right. Tried it at the coffee shop with a V60, and it fell a bit flat. Overall, I would get it just for the candy smell.

Very Aromatic

(my method: medium grind, slow pour over water at 200-205 degrees) it had a medium strength flavor, really aromatic while grinding and afterwards; did get floral more than fruity tones. did not taste the zest, however very good taste.

Light. Pleasant but not much on body. Not really a morning 'wake me up and get going' choice. Very smooth, though.

Good

This was a good easy drinking coffee. Smooth with a bit of acidity to it. I enjoyed it.
