Wide Open Road Coffee Roasters
BLACKBERRY, MANDARIN AND HAZELNUT
Farm: Various smallholders
Variety: Caturra and Castillo
This washed espresso comes from Buesaco, Nariño – a small municipality in the southwestern corner of Colombia. Collectively produced by as many as 15 smallholders growing in the Buesaco region, our import partners Cofinet have delivered a union of caturra and castillo crops grown by these very same smallholders. With a cool to moderate climate reaching average highs of 25℃ and soil rich with volcanic ash, the result is this ripe and zesty espresso – a true reflection and celebration of the Buesaco landscape..
For 80 years Cofinet has been growing and supplying local exporters with the finest Colombian coffee. In 2015 they decided to take their work global, continuing to grow coffee, providing support for other growers, and taking the lead on exporting the best crop Colombia has to offer. We’re always motivated to work with exporters who align with our values of sustainability and maintaining long-term relationships with growers. We’re proud to work with Cofinet to help them continue their positive influence on the industry.

Note: We have developed an espresso profile for this coffee - meaning it is roasted a little darker than would normally suit filter brew methods. If you're using pour over, Aeropress, batch brew, plunger or other filter brew methods we recommend our Single Origin Filter Roast. However, we're more than happy to supply any of our coffees ground to any specifications - coffee is a personal journey, and we are excited to take that journey with you.
