It’s always a pleasure to introduce another great coffee from Colombia; so with pleasure, we introduce the Estrella del Ostro. Its name derives from the Star of the Southern Wind that rises over the mountains where this coffee is grown. The harvests of the fifty producers of the Belén Association make up this and other coffees; this one in particular is a mix of Caturra, Castillo, Colombia, and a little bit of garden-variety Typica thrown in for good measure. It’s grown in the shade of plantains as well as other indigenous trees (chachimbo, nogal, and guambo) in 30% cover, which is just about perfect for the amount of sun for this altitude. We’re pretty pumped about the flavor profile; very classically Colombian with an exceptional balance of body and acidity. Both citric and phosphoric acidities are present, which make this cup lively as well as balanced, and a faint aftertaste of cocoa leaves a very pleasant finish. Sourced from our friends at Caravela, we’re delighted to present you with this excellent example of what so many love in coffees from Colombia. Enjoy!
