Colombia Fabian Urbano comes to us from our friends at Royal Coffee in Oakland, CA. Grown on Fabian Urbano's farm Aponte in the municipality of El Palón de Gomez, this lot was chosen as one of the best in the southern Colombian department of Narino's annual Best of Narino tasting event, co-sponsored by Royal and Inconexus, a Colombian coffee exporter. Fabian's coffee grows at staggeringly high elevations around 2100 meters above sea level, and such extreme conditions lead to a coffee which stood out to us for its intense brown sugar and toffee like sweetness, buttressed by a lovely acidity akin to that of dried cranberry.

Here's what Royal has to say about this coffee and its growing region: 

"The department of Nariño has about 40,000 coffee farms, two-thirds of which, average around 3 acres in size. Nariño’s proximity to the equator delivers intense exposure to the sun (relatively constant and powerful year-round), which influences the cherry maturation rate. In Buesaco, warm air rises from the deep canyons at night and acts like a protective blanket for the coffee plants perched on the mountain tops. These combined attributes cause coffee plants to passively absorb the sun’s energy during the day and then come alive at night when the conditions are less harsh. This translates into concentrated flowering and long cherry maturation periods, which have produced many award-winning coffees including this years's first place Colombia Cup of Excellence lot. Fabian has been cultivating coffee for the last five years and uses his own micro-mill to process harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, sixteen-hour fermentation periods, and 7 to 14 days of drying."

Fabian's coffee has been tasting wonderful in both drip and espresso brewing methods, and we're really excited for you to try it.
