It's not often that you get to taste varieties relatively undiscovered within the coffee world, so when they become available, it's worth noting. The unique variety in this case is the Colombian Caturra Chiroso, which has been receiving more and more attention by coffee professionals due to its incredible cup quality, elongated cherries, and uncertain past. The variety is speculated to be a natural mutation of caturra and was only recently discovered in farms around Urrao. Still grown exclusively in that area, this variety is gaining interest by farmers of the region who are finding it to be uniquely robust in its growing habits, highly productive, and providing floral and fruity flavors reminiscent of some of the top varieties available.
Sourced by Cafelumbus, this lot is a combination of caturra chiroso (60%) and Colombia (40%) varieties grown at 2,200 meters above sea level in the southwest mountains of the valley of the Penderisco river. These dense beans were washed using open-tank fermentation and sun-dried on patios. On the cupping table, the lot is shining through with notes of jasmine, lime, mandarin orange, and a spicy chocolate aftertaste. The combination of excellent farming practices, fertile soils, and sound processing have allowed this coffee to shine through as a true snapshot of the uniqueness of Urrao and the caturra chiroso variety. --Info courtesy of Balzac Brothers and Company
