Explore the tasting notes of a single origin specialty coffee sourced from Colombia freshly roasted in our coffee lab, at Meron Roastery. Here is some cool info about the coffee and the farm.
Don Alejandro Ortiz, owner of the Llamadas farm, is the eldest of 9 brothers, sons of coffee farmers. Since his childhood don Alejandro accompanied his father to harvest and plant coffee, a profession he practiced during his adolescence to “earn a few pesos”.
After meeting his wife Nancy, with whom he had 6 children, Don Alejandro gathered his savings and acquired 10 hectares of land landlocked in the Central Colombian Cordillera where he produces with his family varieties like: Borbon Rayado, Borbon Rosado, Geisha and Caturra.
Together with other producers, he founded a coffee association that works for the continuous improvement of agronomic and post-harvest practices.
Pitalito is bordered by the Central and Eastern Andes, with most of the region located in the Magdalena Valley. This gives a great variation in climate, the temperatures in the farms vary from 17C to 23C. Most of these farms are between 1200 and 1800 m. They also benefit from the volcanic soil.
The Striped Bourbon is a wild mutation of the Bourbon variety; it is a natural dried coffee but also fermented for 400 h. These 400 hours of fermentation take place in several stages with different tanks and temperatures. The result is a coffee with more marked fruity notes, a rounder texture on the palate, and very little bitterness.
