We love coffee with a story and Catalina Rodriguez’s story starts with opportunities. She lived a life of extreme poverty until one day Catalina met representatives from the MARGOAS project. During their meeting she was asked if she would be interested in planting coffee seedlings and was offered a loan. Her first planting was almost lost entirely but Catalina decided to convert to organic production at the suggestion of COMSA's agronomist (you may recognize this co-op as they produce amazing coffee which we carry frequently). They recommended that she fertilize the estate with a mixture of coffee pulp, manure and various compost. The organic seed has shown her that the compost has a more lasting effect and produces a stronger, greener, and more productive plant in a more environmentally friendly manner.
It's obvious Catalina has cultivated a relationship with her coffee and cares deeply for it as the cup is absolutely stellar. It's warm and sweet with a slightly crisp front end. Full bodied and balanced, its got a nice creamy texture and notes of red delicious apple, black cherry and apricot. This coffee is incredibly versatile and makes for a perfect morning cup as well as a sweet and refreshing iced coffee. We find the flavors shine through best in the City + to Full City range (light medium to medium). Don't miss this coffee, it's incredible!
