The department of Cauca, while not foreign to the coffee industry, is often overshadowed by other, more famous departments in the region. Colombia's varying elevation and climate makes the country well suited for growing diverse, interesting coffees. This southwestern region, facing the Pacific Ocean, experiences fluctuating temperatures throughout the day and night, while the nearby mountains and proximity to the equator enable a stable micro-climate year-round. Combined with the high altitudes in Cauca, this leads to more acidic, distinctively sweet & fruity offerings. Jhon Jario is a lifelong coffee farmer drawing from years of experience dating back to his childhood on his parents' farm. In 2008, after several courses and years of studying, Jhon made the transition from commercial to specialty coffee production. He's continued to improve on his practice, and we are very excited to share the fruits of his labor. This coffee is smooth and sweet with hints of tropical fruits. Dial into floral notes of tamarind and maple by starting with a 1:16.5 brew ratio, filtered water at 206-208℉, a medium grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle.
