On June 17th, 2021, an ultra-limited Reserve offering will hit our shelves online and in cafes.
This very special offering from El Caiman, Colombia is unlike any other coffee you’ve ever tasted. Sourced directly from Nectario Zuñiga’s farm El Altico via our partners at Cofinet, Restoration Colombia showcases a 100% Typica lot. Processed using a lactic natural method, this Reserve offering takes a walk on the wild side of fermentation and highlights all that is good and luxurious about lactic naturals, and is a seriously juicy cup of coffee.
Akin to the recent natural processing movement in winemaking, the natural coffee processing movement elevates the final cup. Harnessing the power of fermentation is the key, and Nectario Zuñiga is a true master at it. This lot of coffee from Nectario’s farm, El Altico (‘The Attic’), was processed using a lactic natural method and highlights the luxurious flavors brought out by this processing method. The addition of lactose to the coffee cherries during processing brings out robust, richly fruity flavors and a big body. With tropical notes of papaya paired with the juiciness of lemon and nectarine, and notes of black tea, Restoration tastes like a tropical Arnold Palmer.
We named this offering from Nectario “Restoration” in order to celebrate not only the arrival of spring, but also the restoration of Nectario’s farmland. Originally from Cauca, Colombia, Nectario lost his land due to violence years ago. Thanks to a Colombian government program, Nectario’s land was restored, and he improves his practices and processing methods each day. Our partners at Cofinet helped us source this coffee from Nectario directly, and we’re excited to share the fruits of his labor.
Restore your senses with a mug of Restoration Colombia before this limited-batch offering leaves our shelves. We only have 200 12 oz. bags of this offering available online and a very small amount in our cafes, so you’ll need to act fast and grab some while it’s still here! Bonus points for the free carbon neutral shipping on all orders.SHOP RESTORATION COLOMBIA RESERVE AT 7:30AM ON JUNE 17TH
