Colombia Cauca El Totoro

$15.95 lb.

Our Colombia is sourced from a group of farms located in the municipality of El Totoro within the department of Cauca, Colombia.  This group of family owned farms, including farmers Ciro Antonio Camayo, Maria Teresa Paz, Ramiro Antonio Vainas, Arley Arturo Camayo, Edelmira Camayo, Loborio Zambrano and Aiber Fredy Vainas, collaborate with an export company called Banexport to gain access to technical support for best agricultural practices.  Banexport has matched this group of growers because of their shared commitment to exquisite coffee processing and loving care for their farms.  Each of these producers takes great pride in managing their farm along with the support of their children who have learned to cultivate coffee through a program called School and Coffee that focuses on increasing income to pay for their education.

Coffee growing altitudes in this area reach 1910 to 2100 meters and the soil is composed of clay minerals.  For processing the coffee is fully washed and dried inside solar dryers that provide protection from rain.  A sweet and complex aroma with notes of butterscotch, milk chocolate, bright citrus and tropical fruit.  These notes follow through to the cup in nuances of lemon and orange, cherry and apple, cocoa and cola nut.  Well-balanced and luscious with a creamy body.
