Colombia Las Cascadas Coffee

Expect a smooth milk chocolate with a brown sugar sweetness, fading into a rounded candied orange acidity.

Founded in 2008 in the south of Huila, this group of smallholder farmers had been implementing practices consistent with organic farming for years before deciding to consolidate as Las Cascadas de Bordones to better sell their coffee in the international market. With twenty hectares of coffee between them from an average property size of 1.5 hectares, the 60 members partake in sustainable crop management projects that are organised once a month which are constantly monitored.

Casa Espresso source this coffee with the help of their friends at Cafe Granja La Esperanza.

In Colombia it is common for even small-scale farmers to do all processing on their farm themselves, in order to pulp quickly and maintain ideal timings required for quality.

Coffee is collected by hand and after harvesting, cherries are hand sorted and floated to remove less dense and damaged beans, then depulped, fermented for 15 hours, washed and solar dried in solar terraces located on farms where they take about 8-10 days depending on the daily hours of the sun.
