Colombia | Organic | Vienna Roast

  • Blackberry, Brown Spice, Molasses

Farmer: Perla de Inza Cooperative
Region: Inza
Elevation: 1800-2100 meters
Varietal: Castillo, Caturra, Colombia

Vienna-style is a darker roast put the coffee is not roasted into second crack so not as dark as a traditional dark roast. The municipality of Inzá is nestled in the middle of the great Colombian Massif. A mountainous region where most of the mayor rivers of the country are born, including the Magdalena, the Cauca and the Patia river. Inza is surrounded by volcanoes, plus the altitude and climate of this region make it perfect for growing specialty coffee. Very small producers tend to their land and hold on to their traditions. Many of them have produced coffee with little or no chemicals for generations. The Pillimue Family, crucial members of the community, led a program to certify 80 producers in organic practices. This small group of producers have become leaders in innovative organic practices, leading workshops in the community in order to re-use a lot of the waste created by the farm and to make bio fertilizers that are cheap and useful.
