In early 2020 we were so fortunate to be able to visit the progressive coffee growing estate La Palma y El Tucán, located in Zipacón in Cundinamarca, and we are excited to offer our first nano-lots of coffees from Felipe and Elisa.
Felipe and Elisa started La Palma y El Tucán with the vision to produce small, perfect quantities of some of the world’s favourite coffee varieties. The farm has a unique layout with each variety planted in an artful way that encourages exceptional production and is also beautiful.
The coffee is picked as it ripens by a team of women whose job is to make pass after pass, day after day, to choose only the best cherries. La Palma’s small wet mill is designed to showcase how fermentation can encourage coffees to show flavours you could only dream. Their dedication to quality is rivalled only by their desire to change the future of production in Colombia - to create new ways for producers to approach farming, processing, marketing. This, in turn, could create incredible change for generational coffee producers in Colombia and many more to come.
This selection is a nano-lot (a single day's cherries) from their ‘Estate & Varietals’ program. After processing and tasting, this lot was designated a part of their "HEROES SERIES" coffees, for its outstanding cup quality. We found a wide range of fresh and ripe red and purple fruits, among them red and purple grapes, raspberries, blackberries, with a sweet honey lemon candy that comes through as the cup cools.
