In the cup; “Rich sweetness with tangy fruit acidity and a creamy mouthfeel; tropical fruit flavor with cherry cola, gooseberry and caramel flavors.”

The Regional Select program was created to highlight the unique profiles we have found that are inherent to various microclimates in many of the countries from which we source green coffee. Local variables like wind patterns, soil quality, sunlight, elevation, and other environmental influencers have much to do with the common characteristics that separate, say, a Northern Colombian from a Southern Colombian coffee, just as they inform the differences between a Colombian and a Kenyan.

Coffees from Cauca benefit from high elevation, cool nights, good varieties, and intentional husbandry. We look for lots that have tangy acidity and a balance of sweetness, with a backbone of caramel or cocoa.
