Origin: Narino, Colombia
This coffee is made up of contributions from a group of farmers in the Yacuanquer area of Nariño, who have worked together for many years. It is a blend, but it’s a very unique coffee that gives the word “blend” a whole new meaning. This season we found this coffee to be well balanced, and elegant with lavender florals and mango fruit. The concept behind Recolectores is to acknowledge the importance and value of the largely unappreciated players in the coffee supply chain; coffee pickers. Pickers play an important role in producing great coffees, yet they are some of the most vulnerable people in the coffee supply chain; working dangerously, and often for low wages. By buying this coffee you are ensuring the pickers get a better salary, as well as paying the farmers a price that allows them to live and continue producing coffee.The coffee from Narino is generally fully washed, and dry fermented.
Juicy mouthfeel, and well layered; Recolectores #1 is a popular coffee at MCC. We love supporting these farmers, as well as drinking their coffee! With caramel-like sweetness, this cup is too good to pass up. If you love Colombian coffee, then this one’s for you!
