Brewing: This coffee works well with all filter brewers and espresso. For filter we recommend a 1 - 16 brew ratio, and for espresso a 1 - 2.5 brew ratio.

Example:
Filter: 15g - 250ml // Espresso: 18g - 45ml

We are always very excited about our small Colombian microlots sourced through The Green Collection. This coffee comes from a small 3.5 hectare farmed owned by Wilson Vaquiro. He grows a mixture of varietals and focuses on careful washed processing. All coffee is hand harvested carefully to select only ripe cherry.

After harvesting the coffee is left to rest 16hrs in sacks in a cool dark room. The coffee is then pulped to remove most of the fruit and then dry fermented for 24hrs. This long, dry fermentation has worked very well and has resulted in coffee with amazing clarity with bright, juciy flavours of tangerine, redcurrant and sweet lemon. After fermentation the coffee is washed and dried on raised beds.
This is a wonderfully well balanced coffee that is fantastic both as filter and espresso.
