Origin: Huila, Colombia
Producer: Argeniz Gaitan Ortegon
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!
