Finca El Naranjo
Maple Syrup, Dark Chocolate, Raspberry, Lemon, Marzipan
This microlot produced by José Abelardo Guar Ultengo is a beautiful washed coffee that came out so good it won the 4th place in Best of Cauca competition, where we discovered it. José’s plot might only be 1 hectare small, but his commitment to growing the finest coffee shines through this cup. Finca El Naranjo is a balanced Colombian that will taste great as a filter, bold sparkling espresso or a smooth flat white bringing out the sweeter notes.
José Abelardo Guar Ultengo
We were lucky to meet José Abelardo Guar Ultengo during the Best of Cauca, where he participated with Finca El Naranjo. José is a coffee grower from the village of Santa Teresa Municipality of Inza, Cauca region. During his first harvest in 2005, he joined the Cooperativa de Cafocultores del Cauca. The association empowers Colombian growers through training where they learn how to manage a farm, upgrade processing methods or properly store coffee. Within a few years of operating, José's harvest stood out amongst the region's best so much we decided to add it to our coffee menu.
Finca El Naranjo is your chance to taste a classic washed Colombian, known for its high quality coming from meticulous farming and processing. We just cannot stop talking about how balanced this coffee is! The bold body compliments the fruity acidity nicely, creating a complex cup you will happily drink day after day. Think chocolate and caramel notes rolling over your palate, an aroma of orange blossom and ginger cookies, with a smooth marzipan finish.
