This coffee from Raul san is our very first trade with his farm, El Porvenir. Don Raul is a father-in-law to Astrid san who grew our favorite Colombia Astrid Medina.

This Colombia Raul Duran will first give a refreshing, hassaku citrus or herb-like aroma when it is hot- as it cools it reveals more and more sweetness, and the cup impression turns more like ripen apricot. This dramatic transition is what makes this coffee so unforgettably charming.

Some of you may remember that we had Castillo variety for the last year’s Colombia Lisandro Quilcue- the Castillo for this coffee, however, is what is typically called a hybrid (artificially designed variety to combine different varieties’ different strongpoints such as immunity against crop disease, or higher yield).

Generally speaking, hybrids are considered lacking in flavor- but this one throw that pre-conception completely out of the window. It is a limited batch, so grab while it lasts!
