Everything you want to know

A naturally processed Colombian coffee, like El Indio, truly represents a rarity in the renowned Tolima region, known for its production of washed coffee. However, this particular exception demonstrates how innovation and experimentation can lead to excellent results.

The Tolima region is renowned for its large quantity of cultivated coffee, accounting for 12% of Colombia's annual production. Moreover, Tolima Coffee is well-known for its consistently high quality, which is why it often takes center stage in events like Cup of Excellence and all competitions organized by the Colombian Coffee Federation.

The production of this coffee is entrusted to members of the ASOPEP association (Association of Ecological Producers of Planadas), a community of 175 coffee farmers' families. With great care and attention, the farmers manually select only mature cherries, which are then dried on raised beds until they reach 11% moisture content. This lengthy process requires precision and dedication, but the results are extraordinary, as evidenced by the uniqueness of this coffee, which stands out for its freshness and irresistible pleasantness.

In the cup, it presents a creamy body with aromatic notes of blackberry, strawberry, dark chocolate, and raisins. The acidity is complex and well-balanced with a good sweetness.

According to the SCA cupping protocol, this coffee received a score of 87 points.
