Regional Select is a project we have created in Colombia meant to highlight the unique profiles we have found are inherent in specific microregions within Colombia. The regions we highlight with this project are Huila, Narino, Cauca and Tolima.
This lot comes from the Bruselas microregion within Huila. Most of the harvest is done during November and December, and the remaining "fly crop" is harvested between April and June. The coffee is depulped, fermented between 20 and 36 hours, and fully washed; it is laid out to dry for 10 to 18 days before hulling.
We think that the terroir or soil, sun weather and placement on the planet contribute largely to the flavor of these coffees when picked ripe and handled properly.
