Colombia Los Alpes Coffee

The story of Los Alpes begins with José Arboleda and Elvia Ramirez purchasing their farm in 1974. Since then, the farm has grown and moved from producing commodity coffee to high-end lots with exotic processing.

This coffee is a carbonic macerated natural, meaning it was picked and placed inside a sealed container which had carbon dioxide added and the oxygen removed. The wine world has been using this carbonic maceration for decades. In coffee, it creates a cup that is massively fruity and incredibly vibrant with high sweetness.

Experimental coffee processing is something new in the coffee world. Over the last ten years or so, we have seen the world’s most high-end coffees go from complex delicate washed coffees to, first, embracing honeys that were popularised in Costa Rica to, now, funky naturals and experimental lots. The change is underlining the trend for more intense and sweet coffees. Natural fermentations like this make the end cup taste like stewed berries with lots of jam-like notes.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
