New name, same quality. Formerly named Tolima Especial, Sagebrush is now an essential coffee in the Canyon year-round lineup. Sagebrush will continue to be smooth, bright, drip coffee perfection.
Lighter in body, Sagebrush is delicious and juicy, perfect for everyday enjoyment. Sourced in support of the most exciting emerging farmers, the coffee's origin will rotate in reflection of the seasons.
In the cupping in which we chose Sagebrush, we were really impressed with its sweet, clear flavor while maintaining the creamy body we love. These are the impressive qualities of coffees we source from higher elevations. The beans that comprise the Tolima Especial lot were grown between 1,700 and 2,100 meters above sea level. We tasted notes of chocolate, nougat, and stone fruit
This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Asociación de Productores Agropecuarios de Santa Rosa (ASPRASAR). ASPRASAR is a producer association with 94 members who live in Saldaña a municipality in the department of Tolima, Colombia. ASPRASAR was founded in 2016 and works in collaboration with an export company called Lohas Beans to establish connections in the specialty coffee market, which has improved coffee prices for its members and enables farmers to reinvest in their farms and provide for their families.
Over the years, we've honed in on a tried-and-true medium-coarse grind setting that works well for a range of home-brewing methods, including pour overs, coffee machines and french press.
