COLOMBIA LA ILUSIÓN ORGANIC - Dark Roast Coffee
Here at Redber we only Roast to Order - All of our coffees are fresh and never stored!
Our latest Colombian micro-lot offering is La Ilusión. Farmed by Robinson Rivera and his family in Montalvo, Tolima on only 3 hectares of land some 1900 m.a.s.l. The crop is made up of F8, Colombia and Castillo varieties and is picked when ripe and sundried for 32 hours.
This wonderful coffee boasts a complexity typical for the Tolima region with bright flavours of vanilla, orange and a green apple acidity with a subtle sweetness of panela throughout.
La Ilusión is a great coffee for those of you looking to discover just how complex coffee can get while remaining accessible with sweetness and acidity.

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.
Very enjoyable, would buy again
Bought a couple of different roasts to try. On a blind taste, this organic slightly more expensive bean was the best. Elegant vanilla and apple notes.
Excellent: I would definitely buy from you again.
