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 lot from San Fermin is a coffee we’re especially proud 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 five years we have worked with them alongside our importer, we have seen huge potential for quality and have even launched "special selections" from their community in the past. This lot serves as the foundation to many of our blends, but provides an exceptional, smooth, every-day cup on its own.
