The Comité de Cafeteros del Cauca is the Cauca arm of the Colombian Coffee Growers’ Federation (FNC), which is a private, not-for-profit trade organization. An important function this organization provides for producers is the purchase guarantee, which essentially supplies an outlet for any quantity of coffee at a price representing a generous share of the commercial export value. Additionally, the Comité del Cauca fosters technological development, technical assistance, and the transition to more environmentally sustainable growing and production practices.
Every year the Comité organizes quality competitions to attract attention from the market and also motivate producers. The lot we bring to you today is from the most recent competition and consists of producers who scored exceptionally well at 85 and over, amongst which the top ten winners were selected. We were drawn to this lot for its comforting profile with notes of dark chocolate, caramel, pecan and hints of orange zest. Please enjoy!
