Colombia is one of coffee’s most dynamic and diverse origins, producing coffee with every possible range of flavor profiles, from sweet and balanced to potent and punchy. It’s also an origin that’s home to some of our longest standing relationships. Given the diversity of coffee coming out of Colombia and the many blend components and single-origin coffees we bring in from there, we consider these relationships part of the backbone of our company.
For these reasons, this special selection from San Fermin is a coffee we’re especially thrilled to bring to you. This community of growers is named after the festival of San Fermin — aka. the running of the bulls — for their courage and commitment to “grabbing the bull by the horns” and improving every day. In the four years we have worked with them alongside our importer, we have seen huge potential for quality, and this first single-origin selection is out first chance to show off their coffee on its own rather than in a blend. It shows off just how complex Colombian coffee can be, and represents an exciting step forward for these growers.
