This coffee comes from the Cauca region, where Julian Palomino and his wife Maria Teresa grow the Castillo varietal 2000 meters high up on the Colombian Massif. Just 80% of Finca El Progreso, their 5-hectare farm, is dedicated to growing coffee. The rest of the land operates as a sustainable forest reserve. High altitude, small size, and attentive farming all converge in creating a sweet, complex and refreshing cup. The most prominent flavour notes this year are juicy blackcurrant, meyer lemon and plum with assam tea accents and a velvety mouthfeel.

This is the fourth year in a row that we are working with Julian and Teresa, and we are always pleased to showcase their coffee; now on an exclusive level. The couple has a trained background in agriculture, which helps them implement farm protocols and ensure the highest cup quality. Selective picking of ripe cherries, an extended 20-hour fermentation, and slow controlled drying are essential to a consistent and flavourful harvest. On El Progreso they live by the proverb “Coffee is a blessing and every effort you invest in it pays off”. We couldn’t agree more.
