Our holiday coffee comes from producer and our long time friend Yobani Ramos in Tarqui, Colombia. This washed Colombia variety is creamy, with notes of sweet buttery toffee which is balanced and by bright fruit notes of pomegranate and clementine.
We first got introduced to Yobani and her incredible coffee when she won the Tarqui Cup in 2016. The area of Tarqui has a tropical climate, perfect for growing coffee, with high and steep mountain sides. If you follow a long and winding gravel road up along one of the mountains and all the way to the top, you’ll find Finca La Fuente. At 1900 meters, Yobani Ramos’ farm is one of the most beautiful places you can imagine. With a view that goes on for miles and miles over the neighbouring peaks and valleys we never seem to get enough of it every time we visit. This is where Yobani grows her Colombia variety coffee, all according to biodynamic principles, making her coffee not just amazingly delicious but also organic.
250 grams of whole beans roasted for filter.
