Colombia, El Retiro, AntioquiaThis coffee is grown on a farm named "El Retiro" owned by Gustavo de Jesus Rivera in the Caicedo municipality of the department of Antioquia in Colombia. The farm is located at an elevation of 7200 feet above sea level and is one of the highest grown coffees we've offered at Blue State Coffee. This elevation produces a particular microclimate that allows the coffee to develop slowly, and combined with a longer fermentation time using a lower water temperature for this washed process coffee, creates a complex, delicious cup. The infrastructure for specialty coffee is new and developing for this region, and it is rare that a coffee is separated from an individual farm and brought to market. We are one of few to offer this coffee and are very happy to support the growth of specialty coffee in this area.
