Coffee of the month - Colombia La Primevera washed

We've got another fantastic coffee of the month to share with our subscribers starting from the 9th of June.

This is an exclusive microlot from La Primevera in Planadas, Tolima, Colombia. The farm is owned by Gustavo Charry and is planted with Typica, Colombia F8 and Caturra at an altitude of 1700 masl.

Planadas is one of the most isolated coffee producing regions in the country and is high in the mountains between two national parks. The drive to Planadas takes around 12 hours from Ibague, the capital of the province. There are 48 coffee producing hamlets representing close to 7000 small farms. Many of these farms produce coffee that is sold for a low price into the commodity market but there are programs in place to train and encourage the production of seperated small microlots with high cup scores. These are much more profitable to the farmers and we love being able to buy small individual farm lots through our friends at The Green Collection. 

La Primevera covers just 4 hectares all processing is done on the farm. Coffee is first hand harvested selecting only ripe cherry and this is then pulped to remove the fruit and fermented for 34 hrs dry in large tanks. This dry fermentation is very common in Colombia and is one of the contributing factors to the incredible and complex flavours. Fermenting dry increases oxygen exposure and once complete the coffee is washed to move this residual fruit and then sundried on raised tables.

We love the juicy, complex flavours of these outstanding Colombian coffees and you can expect notes of tangerine, orange, brown sugar and a wonderful floral aroma.

We’re not easily pleased - honest!

This is our new favourite. We were disappointed that our usual Kenyan coffee was not available, but true to form Horsham never disappoints. This has a slightly fuller depth and richness to the flavour and makes a perfect cup every time. We’re on our 2nd kilo now!

Makes my mornings that much better

I upgraded from a cheap blade grinder to this and the difference is night and day. Consistency is key when it comes to good coffee and until I got this I was making a completely different cup each morning. Now I really feel like I have control over my grind size and my coffee quality has improved massively.

Easy to use, easy to clean, well priced compared to others on the market, what's not to love?

Best so far

This is absolutely delicious , best coffee so far

Class grinder

I recently was looking for an electric grinder that would not be over expensive but better than the cheaper end models so after lots of reviews I managed to settle on the wilfa . I also watched a James Hoffmann YouTube video of this grinder and liked what he had to say . Now I’ve been using it a few weeks it’s superb and quite quiet and very quick at grinding 14g of beans in no time at all . Overall I expect it to last a long time as it’s well built and easy to clean

Great coffee!!

If you haven’t tried this coffee and you are an espresso fan then do yourself a favour and give it a try.
