Current Origin: Colombia
Producer: Asprasar Co-Op
We Taste: Chocolate, Nougat, Stone Fruit
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
Our current producer the Asprasar co-op in South East Tolima. Asprasar was created in 2016 by about 100 men and women farmers, with the goal of increasing their quality of life through earning higher prices for their coffees.
Asprasar is committed to preserving the environment for future generations and has achieved an impressive number of certifications: organic, NOP, EU, Jas, FLO, Rainforest Alliance, UTZ, and Manos de Mujer.
This lot was produced between 1,700 to 2,100 meters above sea level with rich soil that allows for the optimal production of coffee. The coffee underwent 12 hours of fermentation and dried for 10 to 20 days depending on the farm.
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. With this grind setting, you have the power to adjust the flavor of your coffee through your coffee to water ratio and water temperature. Feel free to email us with questions or for brewing help!
