Colombia Pitalito - Coffee Beans
almonds, chocolate, fruit
This coffee comes from the small town of Pitalito, which lies in southern Huila in the Valley of Laboyos. This southern area of Colombia is at the foot of the Andes mountains. This massive mountain range is the birthplace of the Magdalena River, which travels north all the way to the Caribbean coast.
The valley itself lies at about 1,300 meters above sea level. All the surrounding mountains grow coffee with the average farm having about 6 hectares and about 5,000 trees per hectare. The soil is volcanic, providing lots of organic nutrients for this high altitude coffee.
The coffee is washed then sun dried. It has a sweet caramel aroma with a mild acidity and a medium bodied sweet flavour with notes of stone fruit and caramel.
Colombia is basically free of climatic catastrophes like frosts, hurricanes, earthquakes, or volcanic eruptions, which hamper other coffee-producing nations resulting in a consistently good crop.
