We are both honored and thrilled to be sharing this new series of seasonal coffee with you all.
Launching three Colombian at once is probably unheard of, but as you know it, we do what we see fit.
Our goal with these three coffees is that despite coffee coming from same country, we believe varietal and terroir plays a critical role in nurturing the quality and flavor profile of the coffee itself.
With these three Colombian coffees on hand, we shall explore this top specialty coffee producing country altogether.
Allow us to introduce Apex Coffee Imports, these coffees come through their hard work and dedication, travel the thousand miles that we cannot, connect to those like-minded quality driven producers and today ends up on our hand.
Quality driven is easier said then done, we believe our work as a roaster ourself and our working partners, like Apex Coffee Imports, are those doing is more important than talking.
Franco's farm is near the town of Arboleda, which is located in one of the most dangerous parts of Nariño. Illicit crops like coca are common with violence, corruption, and intimidation an unfortunate reality of this area. A brave group of farmers like Franco continue to grow coffee in spite of these difficult circumstances. This is the first year that Franco's coffee has been separated as a microlot and is a great example of a terroir-driven, minimal-intervention coffee.
