March 2024 Roaster's Select: Colombia Risaralda

Welcome to our coffee odyssey! This month, our spotlight shines on Risaralda, a gem nestled in Central Colombia. Let’s unravel the tale of this exceptional single origin.

The Coffee Triangle: Where Magic Brews

Risaralda is one of the three departments that form Colombia’s legendary Coffee Triangle. But it’s more than geography—it’s the heartbeat of Colombian coffee. Here’s why:

  • Roots in History: Since the mid-1800s, Risaralda has been nurturing coffee. Its rich legacy intertwines with the land, the people, and their traditions.
  • Epicenter of Flavor: The climate, topography, and ecology align perfectly for coffee cultivation. As mules made way for Willy trucks, the picturesque Andean towns stood timeless, guarding their secrets.

Double Harvests: Nature’s Gift

Risaralda defies norms. While most coffee-producing countries have one annual harvest, Risaralda boasts two. Imagine hillsides ablaze with ripe cherries—twice a year, nature celebrates.

From Cherry to Cup: A Meticulous Journey

  1. Quality Protocols: Our single origin cherries undergo meticulous care. Handpicked at optimal maturity, they’re floated, sorted, and inspected. Quality control is non-negotiable.
  2. Variety: Typica, Caturra, Catimor—the blend harmonizes these flavors.
  3. Elevation: 1550-1750 masl
  4. Fully Washed Process: Clean, consistent, and full of character.

Taste the Symphony

This coffee dances on your palate—a complex, balanced profile. Notes of chocolate, caramel, citrus, and floral weave together. Whether it’s your morning ritual or an afternoon indulgence, Risaralda shines.

Brew Your Way: French press, pour-over, AeroPress—the choice is yours. Sip it black to unlock its full flavor.
