Located in the temperate climate and mountainous terrain of southwest Antioquia, La Carmina Finca El Descanso, has the perfect altitude and climate for producing excellent quality coffee as well as playing host to a diversity of native flora and fauna.
First plotted by the Guerra family nearly a century ago, the farm is still in the family and continues to grow the traditional yellow and red Colombia varietal, Caturra and Castillo.
The Guerra family cares deeply about quality, sustainability, and traceability and keeps lots from different elevations separate, to help highlight the high quality of the upper elevation coffees.
After being selectively hand picked, cherries are dried for up to a month before being husked and milled. The result is an explosion of flavour, with subtle dark chocolate underlying prominent, bright, fruity notes.
Roasters Notes Finca El Descanso
Wow! On first sip, this Colombian is giving masses of fresh fig and zesty lime, underpinned by subtle dark chocolate. The fruit notes cool to Granny Smith apples, leading to a long, satisfying finish. This coffee is in very limited supply, so try it for yourself before it's too late.
Colombia is the third largest coffee-producing country in the world. Mountainous and fertile, it has multiple tropical microclimates which result in incredibly diverse, quality coffee harvested from October to February, with a second, fly crop several months later, varying by region and microclimate.
There is a huge variety of coffee produced in Colombia, but the country’s coffee is generally associated with tasting notes of chocolate, nut and a moderate, citrusy acidity.
