A classic Colombia coffee producing notes of chocolate, caramel, and cherry. This coffee is grown in a very wet region of Colombia where temperatures fluctuate throughout the day. From many farms you can watch the cold air, accompanied by billowing moist clouds, roll from the jungle over top the farm. This makes drying the coffees a challenge, which is why they're placed on raised and covered beds which also adds to the fruited complexity of these coffees.
