We welcome June in with a banger, a coffee with sophisticated complexity and pronounced sweetness - REALPE
Farm: Flia. Realpe
Producer: Familia Realpe
Origin: La Unión, Nariño
Varietal: Castillo, Colombia
Process: Extended Fermentation in tank (48hrs)
Notes: Pineapple, Brown Sugar, Grapefruit, Red fruits
The Realpe family have been dedicated to growing and farming coffee for over 25 years, and own multiple farms in the La Union municipality of Nariño. In their village, Vereda El Chilcal, they helped pave the way for producing specialty quality coffee and were some of the first farmers to begin selling their coffee as micro lots.
The family began experimenting with various fermentation techniques in their coffees, and invited many friends and family to join in their learning journey, including the youth of the village. Their position as pioneers of experimental processing in their area has earned them a near full time job of advising and mentoring surrounding farmers in implementing new processes at their farms.
This selected micro lot has had an extended 48 hour in tank fermentation before being fully washed. This extended fermentation allows for sugars in the cherry to develop creating a more complex and layered cup with a pronounced sweetness. In the cup expect sweet pineapple, rich brown sugar, bright grapefruit notes, and sweet red grapes.
Our second coffee of the month is Reyes, a fully washed coffee with notes of fresh orange, yellow peach acidity and a brown sugar sweetness
Origin: La Unión, Nariño
Varietal: Castillo, Colombia, Caturra
Notes: Brown Sugar, Chocolate, Citrus
Grown in the north east municipality of La Unión in Nariño, close to the mountainous hills of Cerro El Dinde we are excited to bring this coffee from a small co-op of neighbours who have worked together to produce this coffee.
The area is home to generations of farmers who alongside coffee, also farm beans, corn, yucca, and various fruits. The fertile land lends itself well to the growing of coffee trees, providing the crop with the high quality nutrition needed to produce a great harvest.
The families who have produced this lot pay high attention to detail in their processing methods, and are committed to continually educating themselves on better practices and even greater quality in their final cup.
A fully washed coffee, fermented for between 18 and 24 hours. This lot beautifully captures the characteristic flavours of the region with notes of fresh orange, a soft yellow peach acidity balanced with a brown sugar sweetness. Expect a balanced, juicy bodied coffee, and a clean cup.
