Colombia, Nevado Del Huila - Single Origin Specialty Coffee Beans

Regular price $22.00

Tastes Like: Nutty, Malty and Sweet with slightly Floral Notes

In the southwest of Colombia, we find the Huila region, nestled on the flank of the Andes near the Nevado del Huila volcano, the second highest peak in Colombia. Consistently garnering awards in Cup of Excellence competitions, coffees from this department (state) are full-bodied, with a syrupy texture, strong fruitiness, and medium to high acidity.

Huila is steeped in farming tradition. Its rich, volcanic soils and lush climate are ideal for many crops including yucca, sugar cane, bananas, cocoa, and beans. And of course—coffee. This region lies relatively close to the equator which means that coffee harvesting here happens almost year-round. Rich volcanic soils, lush climate, altitude all combine to make coffee from the Huila district some of the most exquisite in Colombia.

Our specialty (single) coffees are roasted from the highest-quality green coffee beans to their greatest flavor potential. All our specialty coffees are free of defects and have a distinctive character in the cup, with a score of 80 or above when graded according to SCAA Standards.

Once the beans are processed and delivered, our master roaster at 36P spends a considerable amount of time to understand the coffee and develop unique roast profiles.

After trying different profiles and cupping we decide on one profile that brings out the best out of that particular bean.

We roast all our specialty coffees in small batches to maintain freshness and monitor quality.

We develop our espresso roast coffee further in the roaster to increase the caramelisation and body, which suits being prepared on an espresso machine to extract delicious elixir.

Our filter roasted coffee has been less developed in order to retain more of the sparkling acidity that a filtered cup of brew desires.

Australia is currently experiencing one of the largest natural disasters in history. This year's fire season has brought about unprecedented destruction as wildfires have spread across every Australian state, burning up nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020. But the devastation witnessed in the state of New South Wales is nearly unfathomable - 3.6 million hectares (8.8 million acres) have been lost, over 1,500 homes destroyed or damaged, and 24 people have been killed. New South Wales is home to some of the most iconic of Australia's wildlife - koalas, wombats, and kangaroos to name a few - and their habitat is rapidly declining.

Trees have been chosen that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the region. This includes various types of native trees and companion plants, depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being restored across Australia.
