Tablón de Gómez is a municipality in Nariño which is in southwest Colombia bordering Ecuador. This lesser known gem is tucked away between the bustling coffee towns of La Union to the north and Buesaco to the south and has been turning out some of the most unique microlots in Nariño with its extreme coffee growing elevation and microclimate.
Every family from this municipality does their own harvesting, processing, and drying either on patios or raised beds. Depending on the conditions, fermentation can range between 12 to 48 hours. Some producers will add several layers of wet parchment over the course of a few days, which is thought to add complexity to the fermentation process and final cup profile. Nariño has some of the best drying conditions in the country due to the microclimate and high elevation, providing lower relative humidity, more wind and more sunny days.
The microlot we bring to you today is from Gildardo Chincunque, an independent parchment collector whose family produces a significant chunk of the coffee across Tablón de Gomez. We were drawn to his microlot for its unique complex cup profile with deliciously sweet notes of key lime pie, candied cherries, and gingersnap cookie. We kept on wanting to return to the cup to see what new notes we would find - so please sip, explore, and enjoy!
