How It Tastes
Colombia Finca Palmichal offers the tropical fruitiness and high acidity we seek in Colombia coffees, but also surprising caramel sweetness and silky body to balance. With notes of milk chocolate, dulce de leche, and mixed berries, it’s dessert-ready, the perfect cup to sip as we slip from the last days of summer into fall’s indulgent rhythms
Producer Atilano Giraldo and his family have been growing coffee in Quindío for three generations, operating a rare coffee estate in a region where smallholder farms are the norm. It’s hard to beat estate coffee in terms of quality control and process oversight; the Giraldos can fine-tune their production down to the field section from which they harvest. For coffee drinkers who crave a taste of place, it offers a unique opportunity.
Colombia is a country where coffee is a point of national pride—in part, no doubt, because they’re the #2 producer of Arabica coffee in the world. It’s difficult to stand out in such a fruitful local market, but high on the western side of the Central Andes, Finca Palmichal is harvesting coffee that makes it look easy.
