The Inza region of Colombia is characterized by deep valleys bursting with plant life, which has earned the area the nickname 'La Tierra Adentro'. The locals growing coffee do so with particular attention to processing, and have organized a collective project to mill and test their crops and production methods. The flavors coming out of the area are pristine and distinctive among Colombian coffees. While you may be used to very fruit-forward Colombian coffees, San Rafael leans more into the rich chocolatey space, providing a cup with depth and resonance. A note of black currant contributes some tartness, and an underlying molasses-like sweetness keeps the profile reigned in and mellow. It's a smooth, refined taste that's sure to brighten your day.
