“COLOMBIA ORGANIC HUILA PITALITO is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Coffee Origen Grupo Orgánico Sur Del Huila, a selection of 109 producers who live within the municipalities of Isnos, San Agustín, Pitalito, and Acevedo in the department of Huila, Colombia. Grupo Orgánico Sur Del Huila is focused on quality organic coffee production and establishing direct trade relationships. Grupo Orgánico Sur Del Huila works in collaboration with an export company called Lohas Beans to establish connections in the specialty coffee market, which has improved coffee prices for its members and enables farmers to reinvest in their farms and provide for their families. Lohas Beans has also helped producers gain access to technical support for best agricultural practices and innovative coffee processing methods.”
On the cupping table, this coffee struk us away with its notes of chocolate, caramel and citurs, as well as its soft, round body. Equal parts familiar and adventurous, this medium roast performs well in most brewing methods, but shines as a filtered drip coffee. Exceedingly well rounded and consistently delicious, this is our new all day drinking coffee. We stoked to have it on offer.
