COLOMBIA HELVER CORDOBA

24.00

While our team was cupping through coffees in Huila this coffee jumped off the cupping table, and everyone was scoring it in high 90’s. The group decided to go and visit the farm, and found that everything growing on the farm was abnormally large from the coffee trees to the banana and papaya trees. The coffee trees were tall, spindly trees with huge leaves and bowing to the ground with cherries. Helver Cordoba clearly has something special going on at his farm, but it wouldn’t happen without a ton of hard work and the desire to produce the best coffee possible.

Earlier in the spring we offered a limited run of a micro-lot with an unknown varietal. The varietal was sent off for genetic testing and the results are in! It is a "COLOMBIA" varietal which has a long history in Colombia. It is a highly productive and leaf resistant varietal introduced in the early 1980's by the agronomist department of Colombia's National Federation of Coffee Growers commonly referred to as the FNC. The varietal was previously discounted to farmers because the quality was considered subpar do to its genetic proximity to the Timor Hybrid. SO WHAT HAPPENED?

How did a Varietal that was previously thought to be subpar, yield such a different looking tree with such amazing tasting notes?

THE COMBINATION OF FACTORS INCLUDING SOIL, CLIMATE, AND SUNLIGHT THAT GIVES COFFEE'S THEIR DISTINCTIVE FLAVOR.

It is likely that soil, and weather at this particular farm is producing a microclimate that allowed this varietal to flourish in a way that we have not previously seen.
