Colombia Popayán Fall Harvest
In southwest Colombia, between two branches of the Andean mountains, there exists a microclimate where evergreens grow alongside palms. Nearly a hundred farmers from APROCEP Cooperative, mostly women, grow a combination of Caturra, Typica, Castillo in mineral-rich soil. Despite modest resources, they individually process their harvests with quality equipment and impeccable technique. Harvests occur twice yearly, and the coffee picked between November and February has made this cup. The tart and caramelized complexities are a surprise for the region—one that we’ll take any morning of the week.
