This beautiful microlot comes from Armel Moncayo, a two hectre farm in the Cauca region, southwest of Colombia. Located on the Colombian Massif, El Marcelo benefits from an incredibly high altitude. This means that the cherries have the advantage of ripening more slowly, developing great sweetness and complexity over time.
We were blown away with the pre-shipment sample for this coffee and the beans are even more expressive now that they have landed at the roastery. We are getting juicy flavours of cranberry, blueberry and sweet apple with assam tea and hibiscus floral notes.
