The Orgánica cooperative in the region of Cauca, Colombia, has been creating coffee for our La Golondrina offering since 2007. Over the years, they have shown they are one of the strongest organizations we work with—and it's no wonder they have one of the best organic coffees in the country. Look for layered flavors of milk chocolate, cherry, and nut.
The term Las Redes is Spanish for "the networks," and each group of farmers the Cenfrocafe Cooperative works with in Northern Peru has a different network name based on the micro-regions their coffees come from. This particular lot is a blend of a few micro-regions that we decaffeinated with an organic water process—leaving intact buttery notes of cocoa powder, walnut, and plum.
This coffee comes from the area of Calvas in southern Ecuador near the Peruvian border. Fifteen growers cultivated Typica and Caturra varieties on very-small organic farms to produce this single-community lot. Look for simple and sweet notes of chocolate and almond balanced by a creamy body.
