Sugary, sweet with caramel, toffee and a grape and plum acidity.

 

Rosa Elvira Ramos owns a farm called Veraneras, where she grows Colombia variety coffee. She's a member of Asociación Los Naranjos.

Asociación Los Naranjos was founded by a tight-knit group of farmers in the area surrounding the town of San Agustín, Huila. Despite the small size of the farms—2.5 hectares or less, on average—and the fact that most producers grow fewer than 12,000 trees, the coffees coming from Los Naranjos have consistently been some of the best and brightest on the cupping table, year after year. The farmers also have a very close kinship with one another and share information easily among their fellow growers: The overall philosophy among Los Naranjos is that anything that improves the lot for one producer can improve the lot for all—which also means that individual discipline and attention to detail on the small farms can have a very strong impact on the group.
