This Colombian coffee is grown on a farm named "El Retiro" owned by Gustavo de Jesus Rivera in the Caicedo municipality of the department of Antioquia. The farm is located at an elevation of 7200 feet above sea level, making this one of the highest grown coffees Blue State Coffee has offered. 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, creates a complex, delicious cup of coffee. The infrastructure for specialty coffee is new and developing for this region, and it is rare that coffee is separated from individual farms and brought to market. Blue State Coffee is one of a few roasters to have access to this coffee and we are very happy to support the growth of specialty coffee in this area by offering this coffee for the second year!

Tasting notes: red apple, sugar cane, balanced
