Colombia Jesucita Cuéllar (10oz.)
This lot from producer Jesucita Cuéllar placed 1st out of 60+ coffees during the yearly Acevedo Cup in Colombia. Jesucita, along with her husband and 3 sons run their farm (El Carmen) on 3 hectares of land. They are focused on consistency in fermentation/drying processes.
This coffee is of the Castillo Tabi variety, a rather unusual varietal in Colombia. This variety lends a layered cup - soft tropical fruits, think guava/papaya/mango, and both body and sweetness are “thick” balancing out the smooth acidity, with floral notes. It’s weird.
Good To Know:
Tabi contributes less than 1% to all coffees produced in Colombia. It was created as a response to Coffee Leaf Rust (CLR) and the devastating effect CLR has had on the coffee growing world. The name Tabi means “good” in the Guambiano (a native Colombian tribe) dialect.
