Colombia Crucero

The first time we're carrying this delicious Colombian coffee from the Risaralda region. Grown at 1650MASL by the Mustafa family, these fully washed Castillo beans have a lot going for them. What's really unique about these beans is how they're processed. Called "batch fed," during fermentation they continuously add newly picked cherries into the tanks to extend the fermentation process.

Ana Mustafa and her family have been growing coffee in Colombia since the 30's, when they moved to Colombia from Palestine.

We taste a lot of black fruit notes - think black grapes, blackberries, black currant, black raisins. Really clean finish and loads of complexity in the cup.
