Introducing an exquisite natural process coffee from Colombia. Our new La Rosa Colombia
is silky and crisp with tasting notes of green apple jolly rancher, meyer lemon, sweet basil, and white peach. It’s super clean and well-balanced for a natural process with a pronounced basil/rosemary-like sweetness that is reminiscent of our very unique Sudan Rume. This coffee comes highly recommended from the JBC cupping team!
About the Farm. Catalina Vasquez is a 4th generation coffee producer who has fond memories of growing up on her family’s coffee farm and living the country life. Catalina spent her childhood hiking the mountains near her home, fishing with her father, eating fresh mangoes on the farm, and picking flowers that her mother would then use to fill the house with vibrant color and smells. As she got older, she learned the inner-workings of growing coffee and, according to her, became one of the best coffee pickers on the farm. Today, she is proud to be one of five females in the house involved in coffee production and she strives to be an inspiration to other female growers in the area. La Rosa is a fertile gem that not only grows coffee but mangoes, oranges, papayas, guanabanas (soursop), mangosteen, and guayaberas. This particular lot from La Rosa is a natural process coffee, meaning the coffee is laid out to dry with the coffee cherry intact (rather than removing the cherry skin and mucilage before drying as is done in a washed process).
