Cocoa. Toffee. Almond. These are the decadent flavours that you will find in this perfectly balanced cup of Colombian coffee. We bought a container of this coffee last year, bringing it directly into the Port of Cork, and it performed even better on this years table—so we had to buy it again. We are all excited and proud to share this coffee with the world.

In an effort to be a better partner to our coffee-farming friends in the South of Colombia by buying more of their fine coffee and paying a premium better than they can find in the local market, we are strengthening our relationships while simultaneously introducing a product to our customers that is solid, flexible and consistent.
The average coffee farmer in Cauca, Huila, and Nariño has about 1.5 hectares of coffee land and will produce about 50 bags of coffee per harvest. During the few months of harvest season, he or she will bring to town on a Saturday 10 or so bags of pergamino, or parchment coffee, to sell.
So today we are pulling out the top lots from those, still a solid 85 points, paying a premium to the farmer and bulking them together to make full container of delicious, rich chocolatey Colombian coffee.
