In 2016, we began working with a small group of family farmers near Sotará in the southern Colombian region of Cauca committed to improving the quality of their coffee. Since then, their coffee has gotten better, their ranks have grown, and they have embraced the Pink Bourbon cultivar. This lot comes from the El Cabuyal farm of Jaime Sánchez Ledezma.

How To Brew
We recommend starting with a 1:18 coffee-to-water ratio, which provides an excellent total extraction level and maximizes flavor pulled out of the ground coffee. For our single origin coffees we recommend a pour over method either on a Chemex, V60 or Kalita Wave on a 5 or 6 grind setting if you are ordering from intelligentsia.com.
