Tasting Notes: Honeycrisp Apple, Marzipan, Black Tea

Leonela Rivera’s farm, Finca La Gloria, is glorious indeed. It sits very near the top of a verdant mountain on the eastern slopes of the Cordillera Central, just over the border from Cauca. The nearest town is Nátaga. It isn't a common place to source coffee, and not just because you can only reach her farm by a steep and rocky footpath. Our green buyer met Leonela in October of 2019, and tasted some of her coffee, pan-roasted, and brewed onsite. It was so delicious, and Leonela so charming, that Cassie and Kyle Ramage (of Black & White Roasters) decided then and there to split whatever lot she could get to our importing partner. That was the first-ever single farm lot from Nátaga on Osito’s books, and we are really honored to bring even more of Leonela's harvest to you this year.

The 2020 harvest has all the most lovable qualities of great Colombian coffee. We taste clean, sweet-tart fruits, like Honeycrisp apple and nectarine. Mid-range sweetness comes through like roasted almonds and brown sugar. Filter brews have gentle hot cocoa notes. The cup is soft and clean like marzipan and black tea. Honestly, it's even better this year than last and we can't get enough.
