ABOUT THIS COFFEE:

The Regional Select program was created to highlight the unique profiles inherent to various microclimates in many of the countries that grow great green coffee. Local variables like wind patterns, soil quality, sunlight, elevation, and other environmental influencers have much to do with the common characteristics that separate, say, a Northern Colombian from a Southern Colombian coffee, just as they inform the differences between a Colombian and a Kenyan. Coffees from Cauca benefit from high elevation, cool nights, good varieties, and intentional husbandry. We look for lots that have tangy acidity and a balance of sweetness, with a backbone of caramel or cocoa.

Some Colombian coffees ripen to yellow instead of red
