    Roaster’s Notes
    This is the first year we’ve bought coffees from the Santa Maria and Palermo areas in northern Huila, on the Nevado de Huila mountain. The area is hidden far away - nestled between Gaitania in Tolima and Inza Cauca - but the coffees produced surrounding this mountain have just been mind blowing and we are super excited have to this coffee in our line up! Ricardo Montano Tovar, a sensei in his own right, is one of a few exceptional producers in Palermo. At his farm Finca El Progreso Tovar in the village of El Mirador, he grows this unique blend of Castillo and Caturra at 1580 masl. The coffee is dry fermented for 18- 24 hours, washed and then dried on raised parabolic beds for approximately 12 days. This careful attention to processing produces exceptional sweetness - think cotton candy - and a juicy, orange-like acidity.
