Tasting Series: Villa Tatiana
Origin: Tolima, Colombia
Producers: Edwin Henao Castano
We’re pleased to present this exclusive lot of washed Geisha from Edwin Henao Castano in Rioblanco, Colombia. Edwin comes from a family of coffee producers, and took on the profession himself in 2004. He was initially working mainly with commodity grade coffee - but was interested in expanding the scope of his operation and getting into the specialty market. In 2016 he made the switch to specialty, and in a big way! The increased prices his coffees command in the specialty market means he’s been able to make many changes and improvements to his operation - including some processing equipment, increased wages for everyone, and some local certifications for organic practicies. Another big shift is varietals - he’s planted some geisha on his farm, which is the incredible lot we’re enjoying this month.
Edwin’s farm only has about 6 hectares of coffee planted and most of it is Caturra - this shipment for Moustache is the only geisha he’s producing this year and we’re so glad we have it to share! Brilliant lime acidity, backed by a rich and vibrant black cherry note make this brew an exquisitely juicy cup. Geisha coffee is always special - but this lot really speaks volumes about what quality coffee means and the difference it can make. Enjoy!
Each shipment will include 6oz of coffee for $22
