Colombia Jaime Ipia
**USPS will be closed for President's Day on 2/19. All orders placed now through then will ship out Tuesday 2/20! **
This offering comes from the La Meseta farm in Nuevo Jerusalen, Jambalo in the department of Cauca. Jaime Ipia is the owner, and he grows Typica at a super high altitude of 2200 meters. Our importing partner, Cafe Imports, hosts a Best of Cauca competition each year and his coffees are consistently among the top scorers!
Jaime has a 3-hectare farm, 2.5 of which are planted with coffee. He picks only ripe cherry, depulps it the same day, and does a dry fermentation for 24 hours before washing the coffee until it is crystal clear. Drying time is 18 days on raised beds under parabolic covers to ensure even drying and a really stable product.
In the cup, look for cherry, plum and melon with a distinct cane sugar sweetness. There is a rich caramel depth of flavor, chocolate fudge and a silky body. It's fantastic!
All coffees are available in whole bean only.
We roast and ship Monday through Thursday. Orders placed by midnight will be roasted and shipped the next roast day. Orders placed Thursdays or later will be rolled to the next Monday.
