The department of Caldas isn't quite as famous some of the other departments like Huila or Tolima, but they have made them selves known for producing the majority of the quality naturally processed coffees in Colombia. This coffee is no exception, and we are happy to work again with LDT USA to source another heavy bodied super fruity coffee for you all.
We stumbled across LDT USA as a bit of a blind sample request. Naturally Processed coffees from Colombia, at the time, were not in our wheelhouse, and to be honest we were incredibly skeptical, as most of the other naturals we had been shown from Colombia were way too funky for us. Too Funky for us is hard to do, but wow they were intense. LDT however shared a few different clean sweet coffees with us that fit our Bright Red label's flavor profile perfectly. We bought one last year, and this year we purchased another from the namesake farm Laderas del Tapias which means "slopes of the wall" loosely translated. This is in reference to the Tapias Canon and River near the farm, and the incredible elevation fo ~1900 MASL.
This coffee is an amazing introduction to Naturally Process Central American coffees. Crazy sweet with tons of those red fruit notes, a bit winey, with a nice balancing milk chocolate to finish everything off.
Farm: Laderas Del Tapias, Caldas, Colombia
Note: We roast and ship Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays
