Sugar Cane, Red Fruits, Sweet Chocolate
From the moment we sampled the San Vicente we were hooked! Everything about it personified how a high quality washed Colombian should drink. A very clean easy to drink coffee with lots of juicy notes and a beautiful underlining sweetness, this suits all styles of soft brewing from V60, Chemex, Kaltiawave, Aeropress and more.
This coffee is produced by smallholders who are members of OCCICAGE Cooperative in the San Vicente region of Huila. In 2015, OCCICAFE shifted it focus in improving the quality of coffee production. Producers now deliver samples of their coffee which are assessed and classified into a distinct grade based on cup score: commerical, regional, regional plus or micro-lot. Coffee that meets the base of regional plus standard needs to cup above 85 points and must have a moisture contact of between 10-11%. Since 2018, a selection of OCCICAFE producers have started processing honey with assistance, innovating yet new methods to create breakthroughs.
