Colombia El Desarollo


El Desarollo is back - one of our favorite coffees for the last 5 years. While we called this coffee Matambo for a few years, it's always come from the El Desarollo Growers Association, and this group of farmers has produced a coffee that's deeply sweet and subtly complex, year-after-year!

The best Colombias - and particularly the best Huilas - pull off a balance between approachability and exciting flavors that few other origins can match. This latest crop is a perfect example of that balance, popping with red berry and plum fruitiness, but rounding out the pop with dark honey and buttery pie crust sweetness.

We had the pleasure of visiting Asociación de Cafeteros el Desarollow in August of 2017 with Caravela, one of our favorite sourcing partners in Latin America. Read more about that visit here to see why we're stoked for yet another great year with the El Desarollo Growers Association and the long game with these growers and Caravela in Colombia. 

We think El Desarollo has something for everyone.  Plenty of traditional coffee flavors and sweetness for those who prefer a more approachable or milk-friendly mug, but also packing juicy, fruity flavors and high-end brightness to please folks who prefer more adventurous coffees. Year 5 of this gem from Gigante, and we’re looking forward to brewing it for the next few months!
