Inzá Cauca

Colombia
Fully washed
Plums, milk chocolate, nutty
Roast degree:
Medium
This coffee was produced by 52 smallholder coffee producers hailing from the municipality of Inzá, located in the corner of the Department of Cauca, bordering with Tolima and Huila and looking out to the west over the Pacific Ocean. Every single micro-lot delivered was cupped and reserved due to its scoring 85 points or above by the community cupping lab, funded by Pergamino. These stringent standards result in very limited quantities of this exceptional blend of 70%+ Caturra and approximately 30% Variedad Colombia being made available for export. Cauca’s violent past, with a heavy presence of FARC guerrillas, had historically prevented the FNC (Colombia’s excellent national coffee board) and specialty-focused exporters from establishing a presence in the region. As violence has diminished, it has enabled the growers in the region to seek increased access to markets for quality, not only taking advantage of the region’s wonderful coffee-growing conditions but also the economic resource that nearby tourist destinations bring (for instance, the World Heritage Site “Parque Nacional Arqueológico de Tierradentro”).
