Colombia Chaman Coffee

This lot is sourced by our friend and partner Rodofo Ruffatti (who is producing and exporting our El Salvador lots) who wanted to valorise the very small (some less than a bag, so less than 70kgs) but great quality lots of some small producers who wold otherwise have to sell their coffees for way less that their worth. He decided to do a regional blend by selecting only the 86+ SCA points coffees from very small producers in one of the highest parts of Huila, around San Agustin. This town is famous for its archeological park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with has the largest collection of ancient mythical-religious rock sculptures in Latin America, including the “Shaman Bat” a sculpture of an ancient Bat-Man figure. This gives this regional blend its name, Chaman, in Spanish.

The lots are blended post processing, each farmer doing it’s own processing. Each farmer’s home has its own depulper and drying area so after harvest the coffee is depulped by the farmer and its family, dry-ferments in a tank overnight and then it’s washed and dried at home. The area being very small, the coffee varietals just a few and the cultivating methods similar, the blend is very uniform and the added attention each farmer gives to his small crop can be felt in the rich and balanced flavour profile.

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.
