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 Diego and Marta Casso. They mill their coffee utilizing the Washed method; once mechanically de-pulped, the coffee sits dry in tanks to ferment. It is then washed and moved to raised beds inside covered solar dryers. They grow the Castillo and Caturra varieties on their farm. This stellar lot was a winner in Monserrate's micro lot competition in years past. Look for notes of Blackberry, Caramel, & Pie Crust.
