Colonna Coffee - Tapir Andino Red Honey [Foundation Filter]
A balanced, chocolatey cup with a delightful hint of citrus.
Roasted on 27 Sept 2021.
The San Ignacio province, from where this coffee hails, sits at the very top of the Cajamarca region of Northern Peru, with the land boasting an impressively diverse range of flora and fauna. As a protected natural area a methodology of conservation across the smallholdings of the region has become paramount.
This mixed-variety lot from the Agraria Frontera Cooperative has been Red Honey processed using wood-tank fermentation. Created from fallen Romerillo trees (regulations prohibit felling), the wooden tanks disperse the heat created in the process, allowing a more even temperature across the crop.
