Colombia - La Cumbre Natural

Varietal –  Caturra
Preparation – Natural
Location – El Pital, Danilo
Altitude – 1700 masl
ImporterNordic Approach

There is no doubt that Colombia has become one of our favourite producing countries. We love the diversity on offer, range of processing styles and recent focus on scientific and experimental processing methods. Most of the amazing coffees we buy from Colombia come from very small farms covering less than 15 hectares and are typically bright, juicy washed coffees. This time we've got something a bit different for you. A wild, funky and juicy natural!

This coffee comes from a farm owned by Ana Cecilia Uribe and managed by her oldest son Danilo Perez. At Finca La Cumbre (where this lot was cultivated), located in the nearby municipality of El Pital, Danilo works side by side with a local producer named Rafita Gómez (who is also the farm manager) with the objective of producing high-quality, naturally-processed specialty coffee. This dry manner of processing coffee is what the Pérez Uribe family have come to be known for, on a departmental, as well as national, level.

Farm Overview:

The farm covers 11 hectares at an altitude of 1800 masl and is planted with Caturra trees. The family have been farming coffee for 6 years and before that we focused on the milling and selling of already processed parchment coffee. The family owns 4 farms in total focusing on natural processing of coffee.

Harvesting and Processing:

During the harvest the family employ a team of around 70 local pickers who are all trained to harvest only ripe cherry and for this careful harvesting they are paid a premium. Once harvested the coffee is handsorted carefully to remove any defects and dried on covered patios. The patio drying under cover means that the coffee is fully protected from bad weather. The drying stage takes around 10 days after which the coffee is stored in grainpro bags in a cold store room.

Tasting Notes: 

Juicy fruit notes including red grape, cherry, pineapple and a lovely sweetness.If you like juicy, fruity coffees then this is the one for you!

Brewing:

This coffee works well for all brew methods. 

Filter: Dose 15g, water 250g. 

Espresso: Dose 17 gram to 40 gram yield over about 30 seconds. 



This coffee is available as whole bean and pre-ground but we recommend always grinding fresh before brewing. We sell a range of grinders if you would like to grind this coffee fresh at home.

    One of the best HCR coffees so far

    I really liked the pineapple aftertaste - very bright and fruity. Absolutely loved this coffee. I hope this lot will be back this summer - getting ready to buy in bulk :)

    Whoa!

    This is an interesting one: exactly as per the description really with an abundance of juicy sweetness - a real pleasure and my favourite coffee for some time. I find that, as with other naturals, the flavours blossom more with slightly cooler water (1 min 15 post-boil) and also with a slightly coarser grind (for V60) than usual.

    Taste unbelievable

    Will definitely by this coffee again
    Love the after taste of this coffee

    Now getting the best out of this fine blend

    Having had this coffee a few times before and really liked it using a modded cheap burr grinder, it really comes into its own now that a more professional grinder as more flovours have been unmasked, great work by Horsham coffee roasters

    Beautiful Coffee

    The coffee is delicious and there’s great variety. Since finding Horsham Roasters I haven’t used anywhere else.

    One of the best yet

    A brilliant filter coffee, juicy and packed full of flavour.

    At last, I’ve found the best!

    Having recently moved to the UK, I was struggling to find a decent bean for my Rocket Espresso at home. I find most beans are roasted too dark for my liking.

    I was so excited though when I tasted the Workhorse bean at a local coffee shop, that I immediately ordered for my home use. At last, a quality espresso at home.

    Thank you Horsham!
