Colombia, Finca La Quebrada, Potrerillos, Huila
Jesus Barrera farms Caturra on his 7 hectare La Quebrada farm, near the small town of Potrerillos in Elias, one of the southern subregions of the famous Huila department in south-western Colombia. Senôr Barrera grows Caturra, one of the main varietals grown, and processes his coffee using the fully washed method, which is typical for farmers in Colombia.
There are so many different flavours available from this country, but across the board, coffees from Colombia tend to have a beautiful balance, and this is no exception. We’ve sourced several coffees from Huila in the past, and we’re big fans of the flavours associated with the region. This is the third time we’ve had coffee from this farm, and every time it sells out pretty quick!
Grown at altitudes of up to 1,750 metres, and picked by hand, this lot is really sweet, and perfect for pretty much however you want to brew it. Its balanced, rich and sweet as espresso, pairs well with milk, and works great with any filter method.
Expect masses of blackberries, vanilla sweetness, some toffee apples, with a big chewy caramel finish. It’ll work at any time of day, and will please any crowd.
