This coffee is super fresh having just landed in Oakland warehouse from the November harvest!  This release is from a very small lot from the community of Inza in Cauca Colombia. This interior region of Colombia is the origin of what is likely the most complex and alluring coffees outside of the coffee plants east African roots. Tasting notes include intense strawberry, juicy watermelon with a lovely bitter grapefruit finish

Deep in the interior of Colombia’s department of Cauca lies the province of Inzá, known in Colombia as La Tierra Adentro. On a good day, it is a two hour drive from Popayán and La Plata in either direction, but frequent mudslides and road closures mean it’s often not easily accessible. On clear days in the village of Inzá, one can see straight up to the Nevado del Huila, the highest volcano in Colombia. The famous Paez river runs east through the valley, connecting Cauca and Huila. Very little coffee is grown below 1750 masl with a great portion growing at 1900 masl. Caturra, Castillo, and Typica are found in the region, with Caturra being the dominant variety.
