COLOMBIA FINCA SOFIA - Dark Roast Coffee
Buttery mouthfeel, sweet acidity with notes of banoffee with a smooth and clean finish.
The La Sofia Supremo is a screen 19 lot, collected from thirty small-scale producers in the veredas of El Tigre, La Selva, Tribunas, Providencia and Patio Bonito. These are all located in the Belén de Umbría region of the Risaralda department in Colombia’s western Andes mountain range. The municipality is located at 1500 meters above sea level, where the average temperature remains at a steady 20°C year-round.
The main harvest is collected in the second semester, from October to November. The mitaca or secondary harvest is collected in the first semester, from March to April. Belén de Umbría ranks amongst the country’s major coffee producing towns, coming in at the tenth position nationally in terms of volume. Farmers in the area typically own a 4 to 6 hectare farm, where they predominantly grow the Castillo variety. The producers wet-process their own cherries. Parchment is dried on patios or in driers, depending on the weather conditions.
