Colombian Medium Light Roast Coffee - 12 oz. Bag

STORYarticle-shape

Back for the sixth season, we’re excited to once again offer the consistently delicious Red Caturra from Esnaider Ortega Gomez and his family’s farm, Finca Villa Maria.

The history of coffee production in the Ortega-Gomez family is multi-generational, tracing its way back nearly sixty years to the earliest days of coffee production in San Agustín, Huila. Esnaider’s grandfather and great grandfather first began planting coffee amongst their other subsistence crops, such as maize, in pursuit of a better life for themselves. The family land has been passed down through the generations. Esnaider and his father, Don Olgar Ortega Bolaños, now own two separate farms in the area - La Esperanza and Villa Maria. This specific coffee comes from Finca Villa Maria, which is also the location of their small beneficio that’s outfitted with fermentation tanks and drying tables. It’s here that Esnaider and Don Olgar spend the bulk of their time during the harvest, directly handling the fermentation and drying processes.

Since graduation from highschool, Esnaider has fully committed himself side by side with his father on the farms. They both share a meticulous attention to detail, genuine curiosity for experimentation, and belief that a more equitable and profitable supply chain is possible. Though Esnaider’s coffees are often sold internationally under his own name, he’s requested that we honor the labor of the entire family, who all help in the process.

The Red Caturra variety from Familia Ortega Gomez is incredibly sweet and structured. It’s truly a near-ideal representation of Colombian coffee from the Huila region. It offers a balanced acidity reminiscent of red fruits like apple, cherry, and raspberry. You’ll find a clean sweetness up front, like white sugar and honey; while the aftertaste finishes with denser flavors, like chocolate, vanilla, and cola. We’re tasting: fruit punch, cherry, raspberry, blood orange, honeycrisp apple, vanilla, nougat, almond, brown sugar, caramel, cola, milk chocolate, black tea, baking spices.
