ASOPROA NARINO - Colombia RASPBERRY/CANDY/BITTER ORANGE
Patch's Notes: A light Colombian coffee that packs a punch in terms of flavour. This is definitely for coffee lovers with a sweet tooth! Herby and sweet aromas followed by raspberry and candy flavours on the palate. Full-bodied with a nice acidity without being too overpowering and to finish things up with a slightly bitter orange note. A complex cup of coffee but very easy to drink.

Luis has managed to sell his coffee through the cooperative Cosurca as his brother Fredy Urbano is a member of the Asproa growers group based in Argelia, Cauca who are members of Cosurca. Through this connection it has allowed Luis the opportunity to sell his coffee to new markets and it be recognised for the quality he produces.

On the farm the coffee is planted among banana and fruit trees which help to provide shade. During the harvest from May to September the coffee is hand-picked every 8 days and then pulped on the same day of collection. The coffee is then left to ferment for 12-15 hours in concrete tanks before then being washed and then dried in a parabolic drier for 8 – 10 days.
