ESPRESSO
Colombia La Cabañita, Washed

SINGLE ORIGIN – ESPRESSO

Producer William Alvarez has worked in coffee since he was a child, beginning as a picker and farmhand before he purchased his neighbours farm and began growing and producing his own coffee. He employs a 30-hour fermentation on his Castillo cherries, which he grows in the department of Huila, in the municipality of Pitalito in Colombia’s south-west.

This washed Castilla is characterised by red fruit flavours, lime-like acidity and a chocolate finish.
