Colombia Madremonte Collective
This lot is made up of coffees grown solely by about 429 female producers in Huila. They are all members of Coocentral who have been working with Nordic Approach to improve the coffee quality, yield and the livelihoods of the producers and their families. The farms are located between 1380 and 1600 masl and this lot is made up of Caturra, Colombia and Castillo varieties. It’s a washed processed coffee and it’s super sweet with notes of cane sugar, molasses, white grape and green apple.
Madremonte means mother of the forest and can be likened to mother nature - a spirit or protector of the forest from Colombian Mythology. She is known to scare cow thieves, slackers and the killers of innocent animals. This name seemed fitting for this group and the work and they are doing.
