Episode 390 on Monday the 2nd of May, 2016. Colombia El Meridiano Rioblanco Washed.

We bought this cup from the cupping table, and sometimes that means we don’t know much about it. First we find out it’s really delicious, then the deeper digging begins!

This is a specially selected micro-lot of coffee from the Tolima region of Columbia. It comes from a small growers’ cooperative with only 58 members (this lot was made by just 20 of them); their average farm size is only 4.5 hectares, and collectively they produce approximately 1,000 bags of coffee per year. This is a great example of smallholders working together to produce amazing coffee. Want to know their names so you can thank them personally? Of course you do!
