Colombia Finca Las Mercedes Medium Roast Coffee

Colombia Finca Las Mercedes Medium Roast

Regular price £5.29
Size

This beautiful and high quality coffee from Colombia has a very sweet citrus and orange flavour with brown sugar.

Located in the temperate climate and mountainous terrain of southwest Antoquia, Finca Las Mercedes has the perfect altitude and climate for producing excellent quality coffee as well as playing host to a diversity of native flora and fauna. In this ideally situated terrain, the Guerra family have dedicated 150 of their 384 extensive hectares to coffee. The rest of the farm lies under native forest – some 234 hectares devoted entirely as nature and watershed preserve.

In 1960, when Eduardo Guerra Sánchez bought Las Mercedes, the finca was devoted entirely to dairy production. Don Eduardo’s background was coffee farming, however, and upon gaining control of the farm, he decided to give some small parcels of land over to coffee. Despite the family heritage, the farm continued to produce primarily milk until Don Eduardo’s son, Alfonso Guerra Velez, took control of the farm some 20 years later.

In the first few years alone, Don Alfonso planted 150,000 coffee trees on the farm, and since this time, the principle economic focus of the Guerra family has turned to coffee farming.

Smooth and balanced

Absolutely nice with full bodied rich aroma. Gives a round smooth base when mixed with some other coffees from Pebble and Pine. Nowadays I usually mix it with the Mexican Aurora in 2/1 ratio. What a perfect match these are...
The result is a creamy smooth and even richer flavoured espresso shot which taste can even more elevated with frothed milk.

Beautifully layered flavours

By far the best coffee I have found in recent years. We buy this by the kilo, while also testing other flavours in your repertoire. This one is my absolute favourite, lovely silky and smooth. Perfect for Bialetti.

Rich Robust Flavour

Good enough for me to purchase the 450gm size this time round. Fills the kitchen with its aroma when freshly ground and makes a lovely rich and robust cup any way I make it. Nice crema on espresso. Will buy again.
