Finca La Peña – Cup of Excellence Winner 2020

Colombia Cup of Excellence

We bought this Caturra lot for you in a Cup of Excellence auction on November 19, 2020. The lot from Finca La Peña is a 2020 Cup of Excellence winner, making it one of the best coffees on our shelf. The coffee has a Complex sweetness with lingering juicy notes of plum, berries and stone fruits.

The aroma is more floral: you smell jasmine and forget-me-not. However, it also brings lemony acidity to the cup.
Colombian coffees are known for developing particularly broad flavor profiles: with heavy notes of chocolate with jammy sweetness. Farms in Colombia are usually very small (no larger than 2 hectares), which is why producers here form small cooperatives. In this way, you benefit from the FNC.

About the coffee

This coffee is a Caturra variety whose beans were harvested between April and June last year. The beans grow at the incredible altitude of 2100 meters above sea level. Rarely do we have a coffee from a higher region on the shelf.

The beans are harvested by hand and then washed to remove the husk of the fruit from the green bean.

The coffee beans were washed before harvesting. This makes the notes even clearer and taste more distinct. We like to prepare the coffee in the V60, so the notes stay clean. But it is also excellent with the Aeropress – we taste the notes and its intensity!

About the farm

The small farm La Peña is run by Edgar Jimmy Gomez Cifuentes. He is actually from near Buenos Aires.

He loves Specialty Coffee and makes a special effort to improve his coffees with different techniques and to make the qualities particularly exciting. One of these methods is fermentation. It brings new challenges for coffee growers but also unexpected possibilities.
