[Single] Colombia Albeiro Munoz Washed Caturra
Albeiro Muñoz along with his wife produce coffee on their farm Finca El Deseo in the La Union district of the famed Nariño region of Colombia. This particular lot is a unique coffee for a Colombian producer as its 100% from the Catuai varietal. Catuai is grown widely in Brazil, where it flourishes and produces great coffee but has been scarcely grown outside of Brazil. Albeiro was gifted some seeds by a Brazilian coffee farmer he met in Bogota 5 years ago and went right ahead planting and cultivating it. Our coffee sourcing partners, Cofinet, were suprised to find the varietal growing and even more atonished by the great flavour profile & complexity in the cup given it was a varietal largely adapted for the very different climate in Brazil.
Albeiro Munoz has a very classical flavour profile that good quality Colombian coffees have. In particular, its dark chocolate-like sweetness and citrus note such as mandarin are just beautiful in this cup.
