A Mystery Varietal

We are actually unsure of the varietal of this coffee. Herbert Peñaloza, Director of Sales for La REB, found this lot from Moisés Caijicá while cupping with an association in Risaralda. One lot of coffee shone far above the rest on the table, but when asked, the association could not tell Herbert anything about the coffee, other than that he was able to purchase it. Of course the coffee was delicious, but Herbert needed to know more, to produce a coffee like that and then export at a small premium over market price with almost no traceability was a wasted talent. After much investigation, Herbert eventually found his way to Moisés, and facilitated the dry milling and export of the lot through La REB, making sure Moisés received a much higher price from us than he would have through the association. After visiting the farm, Herbert was able to reveal a little more detail about the reasons this lot is so delicious. Moisés was given the seeds by a friend involved in export and told to grow them, as this would mean a premium from international coffee buyers. He was not sure of the actual varietal, but after seeing the plants in the field, Herbert thinks that they may be Geisha-related. Moisés mechanically depulps his coffees, and dries with a small amount of mucilage attached, which makes this technically a partial honey process. If the coffee is already at this level, we are excited to see what Moisés can do with some advice from La REB over the next few harvests. We find a very clear character of lemon verbena, alongside orange blossom florals and candied orange peel.

Colombia

La Real Expedición Botánica

La REB are a collective of coffee growers, who through their combined volume, are able to take care of their own quality control and management, and also their own export-import. The goal of the organisation is then to attempt to create relationships between the producers within the collective structure, and roasters willing to make long term commitments to pay a fair price for their high quality coffees. La REB provide us with a very high level of transparency, right down to the farm gate prices transferred from roasters like us to the producers for their unmilled parchment coffee. Through their experimentation with fermentation and varietal throughout varied terroir across Colombia, these producers have created some memorable taste experiences.
