Colombia | Finca Santa Maria
Year after year, this lot makes for an approachable, satisfying cup. We found aromas of candied almond and butterscotch, with almond and a hint of dried mango in the cup. The body is buttery, with nougat sweetness and craisin acidity for balance. The aftertaste of cacao nib and yellow plum begs for another sip.

Notes: Almond, Yellow Plum, Cacao Nib
The growing conditions at Finca Santa Maria in the Nariño region are very unique. Long hours of sunlight and hot springs allow the coffee trees to grow in higher, colder altitudes. This leads to a bean we value for its great level of sweetness and acidity. Armando Benavides is focused on implementing innovations on the farm, such as irrigation, processing methods, and the introduction of new varietals.
