Working closely with The Green Collection allows us to source, roast and provide some of the most exciting and, arguably, best coffee coming out of Colombia. Not only is the quality of coffee important, but The Green Collection prioritise traceability, sustainability and sociability. They pay way above the fairtrade price to farmers, make sure each coffee they source is completely organic and supports the natural biodiversity of the surrounding area (most of the farms are micro-lots surrounded by beautiful rainforest) and they develop local communities to better the lives of the locals and reduce the impact of poverty.
This is an OK beverage but it is far from the coffee l usually drink. It is not pronounced in acidity as such, but it does have an overarching flavour of citrus, to my taste more lime than lemon, or even unripe pineapple! That said, it is not bland or run of the mill and l think many people would really appreciate the quality and style this brings to the coffee drinkers arsenal. Interesting.
