One of the world’s most respected coffee origins, the Huila region is composed of deep valleys and soaring Andean peaks. Pitalito, a charming Huila town with a local accent, is home to traditional family farms that still cultivate classic bean varietals like Caturra. Using environmentally friendly methods, these growers each process their own coffee on-site, dry-fermenting the beans before washing them in local mountain spring water to capture the full essence of Andean flavor in each lot.
Colombian coffees are justly famous for their pungent, seductive aromas, and our Huila Pitalito is no exception. It boasts a dense, sweet and spicy bouquet with whiffs of fig, laurel and rosemary. But the real highlight of this cup is its natural sweetness, making it the perfect pairing for high quality chocolates, pastries, or gelato. A generously full body and a hint of black-cherry acidity bring out definition in the dark, indulgent flavors. Don’t take our word for it: Try a cup of Huila Pitalito today, and find out why it’s our favorite Colombian bean.
