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.
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!
