Kiss the Hippo Coffee - Winter Warmer Blend
Tasting Notes: Blackberry Jam, Caramel, Chocolate Cake.
Colombia - Popayán, Washed & Arcila, Anaerobic Natural
This winter we wanted to release a new blend that both celebrated one of our favourite origins, and also complemented the season of staying warm and craving something comforting and cozy. Say hello to our inaugural Winter Warmer Blend, made up of two coffees from Colombia: Popayán and Arcila.
Our Popayán lot is made up of dozens of smallholder producers who live close together, so all their coffee shares the same round, sweet, caramel-like cup. Arcila comes from one of the most beloved producers we started working with last year, Jairo Arcila, whose coffee is completely unique and full of character.
Colombia’s explosion in coffee quality comes as the nation enjoys a period of peace and stability after the long war ended a few years ago. With this period of peace, coffee regions have opened up and found stability and the opportunity for growth. Producers throughout Colombia are experimenting and innovating to create new and exciting coffees, which we are always proud to showcase.
