Fresh off the boat from sunny Colombia is our delicious new coffee Santa Maria. Grown in Santa Maria, a small city outside of Huila’s capital city Neiva, this delightful coffee is a great representation of the flavors unique to the Huila region of Colombia. The area is a high plain, smooshed between massive mountain ranges south of Bogota. Coffee growing on the sides of volcanoes gets the benefit of some of the most dizzying elevation in Colombia, as well as the much lauded volcanic soil full of nutrients plants love. The unique terroir and growing conditions in Huila seem to create coffees with wild and bright acidity, but also rounded out by deep fresh fruit sweetness.

Approach - Colombian coffees are extremely approachable from a roasting point of view. They are usually very high quality and processed very well, so as a roaster we really have a lot of options about how to roast them. Any type of roast can usually work well for Colombian coffees. We decided to do a really sweet medium roast for the green. We’re trying to highlight the bright apricot acidity, but at the same time we really want to bring out the caramel and chocolate tones that give this coffee a nice round body and long embracing aftertaste.
