For those who love Colombian coffee, we're excited to bring you this year-round collection from the exceptional coffee growing region of Huila, Colombia.
The Monserrate Grower's Association formed in the early 2000’s, when a group of coca farmers began replanting their fields with coffee in an effort to stop the violence that surrounds coca. This resulted in the incredible coffee cooperative we've worked with since 2011.
The collective shares information among community members to help produce better quality coffee, and sells those coffees in individual and group lots. The Monserrate association does not have a centralized mill structure, so each producer operates their own micro-mill and this makes each coffee that comes from the association unique.
Our current selection is from producer Napoleon Barragan, whose lot was selected as a favorite by our roaster while visiting Monserrate. We have purchased coffee from Napoleon Barragan since 2016. Look for notes of Black Cherry, Toffee, and Meyer Lemon.
