Producer: Ana Milena Claros Region: Oporapa, Huila, Colombia Farm Name: Finca Buena Vista Process: Fully washed Variety: Caturra Altitude: 1,700 MASL Tasting Notes: Blackberry jam, rum raisin, milk chocolate, and brown sugar
Brewing Specs: Caturra varieties are typical denser beans, especially when grown at the high altitudes of Finca Buena Vista, so try grinding a bit coarser than you typically would for your pourovers, A 1:15.2 ratio will help those fruit flavors pop. If you're pulling espresso, stretching to a 1:2 ratio will add extra oomph to the balanced acidity of this coffee without overwhelming the palate.
More: Finca Buena Vista sits high in the mountains surrounding Oporapa. Named for the breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains, the farm also boasts ideal soil conditions and a perfect coffee-growing climate. Ana Milena, who grew up in a coffee growing family, purchased her own lot of land to continue in the family tradition. With her husband and baby boy, Ana continues to improve quality on the farm year after year.
