Huila, Colombia


Variety: Caturra

Processing: Washed

Origin: Huila, Colombia

Producer: Argeniz Gaitan Ortegon

Altitude: 1650m

Porvenir is a great lot of washed Caturra from Huila - a comination that's sure to excite the Colombian fans in the club. Caturra is somewhat of a work-horse varietal that's fairly cheap and plentiful in most areas of Colombia - but its capable of producing wonderful flavors when executed to a high level. The plant is somewhat susceptible to leaf rust which is a constant concern in high-volume producing areas like Huila, but it's still a key player in the overall specialty coffee marketplace.

This lot of caturra from Mr. Ortegon is brewing up nicely for us - and we think it will for you too! We're getting a rich, almost wine-like grape note at the outset, with some light floral tones over a sweet and nutty flavor that reminds a little bit of jordan almonds. Altogether the flavor profile sounds like something you'd find at a formal party - and we think it would definitely suit a special occasion!

Another Winner

Really enjoying these Colombians recently. Porvenir has a spectacular nose while brewing. Flavor is robust, with a nice burst of sweetness preceding a rich nuttiness. Excellent coffee.

Good - Not Memorable

Me personally, I'm not picking up a lot of flavor. It's a perfectly fine coffee but nothing stands out to me.

This is my favorite so far. I love the nuttiness, great aftertaste and not at all bitter.

Good Coffee, Not Great

Fine coffee, but not something I would want to drink on a regular basis.

Mixed feelings

I have mixed feelings about this coffee. Coffee is very smooth ans flavorful and reminds me of a glass of wine (I find myself sipping it like a glass of wine as well). It is a good cup of coffee ans I do like it. However, it did not blow me away and I don't know if it is a coffee that I would crave and want to reorder for daily use.

Porvenir is Delicious Coffee

I agree with David's review of this coffee. The nutty-sweet finish is terrific. Moustache continues to find excellent, small batch coffees. Whether your personal tastes mesh with one kind or not, the coffees are always a little different, always interesting--that's what makes the club unique.

Smooth and aromatic

I brew with a Chemex - enjoying the nuttiness and smooth aftertaste. Also it's been a delicious afternoon iced coffee with a touch of simple syrup.

This was a bit too acidic for me. Ended up making as cold brew which cut the acidity down and was excellent

Light body, grapelike consistency, not too much other flavor.

On the pour over this coffee initially had a bit of a tulip like fragrance or some type of flowery vegetation. It had a grape like accent and consistency with a light body and I didn't get much finishing flavor. Maybe will give an update if I try it on espresso. Enjoyed trying it.
