Colombia Tierras Blancas
Region San Agustin, Huila
Location Finca Tierras Blancas
Varietal Caturra, Colombia
Notes Fuji apple, Guava, Passionfruit
High in the Huila region of Colombia, backed onto the Quebrada El Chiquito (an offshoot river from the larger Magadalena river) the small producer Dagoberto Hoyos has his coffee farm Finca Tierras Blancas.
With 18 years of experience crowning the advantageous terroir of this naturally irrigated coffee farm, this humble 6 hectare plantation produces coffee of an impressive qualitative scoring. These two elements produce a coffee that reflects the tropical locale of its cultivation, an assemblage of apple, guava and passionfruit tasting notes punctuated by the clarity of the washing process undertaken to separate the cherries from the bean.
