La Estrella del Ostro means Star of the Southerly Wind in Spanish.

The bright star shines just above the mountain range where this coffee is grown. On a clear night, it points towards the top of the mountain in La Plata.

La Estrella del Ostro is a Colombian speciality coffee grown by various small-scale coffee growers located in the southern region of La Plata, Huila. These small-scale producers all share the same microclimates favourable for cultivating the highest quality coffee. There are only 500 bags produced each year.

This is a great coffee, particularly enjoyable as a Filter or French Press. However, it still makes a fantastic Espresso. There are floral, apricot and red berry notes, pastry and caramel tones with an overall melon sweetness. All in a round body and balanced cup.
