Organic Colombian - Santander

Organic, Rainforest Alliance, Shade Grown, and Fully Washed

New crop Colombian from the Hacienda La Pradera!

This is an impressive Colombian coffee that we are really excited about and believe you will be too!
Hacienda La Pradera is a family owned farm which only produces 100% Organic and Rainforest Alliance certified coffee.

General Flavor Observations
Organic Colombia - Santander

Our Colombian Santander is amazingly sweet and juicy, with a light acidity and pleasant, delicate finish.

An aroma is mouth watering with hints of honey and nuts that give way to a well balanced, medium, tea like body.
Depending on your selected roast level, you will discover attributes ranging from almonds, chocolate, molasses, orange, and more.

This Limited Edition coffee is a must try!

Roast Level Profile Notes
Organic Colombia - Santander

After trying all the roast levels, we can solidly recommend a Full City Roast for this wonderful Colombian coffee.

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast will change the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

If you are seeking a brighter cup with a snappy acidity and prominent notes of citrus (orange), then this is a great choice.
The body will be milder, yet smooth, with a nice herbal quality. Notes of walnuts and chocolate and a crisp finish.

Full City Roast (medium roast)

This is our preferred roast level. A wonderful medium body with a sweet, honey-like mouth feel that rolls off the side of the tongue.
Notes of almond, caramel, and milk chocolate abound. Hints of graham cracker give way to orange and a light, lingering finish. Love it!

Full City (+) Roast

This roast will begin to subdue the brightness, but will add a deeper, black tea-like body with a juicy, molasses quality.
The chocolate nuttiness deepens yet the finish remains crisp and smooth. As the cup cools, the notes of fruit transform to a raspberry or pomegranate sweetness.

Vienna Roast

This roast level will create the sense of a more full bodied coffee with clear notes of bittersweet dark chocolate. A significant reduction of fruit notes will occur, but the finish and mouth feel are somehow more juicy. The finish remains mild and crisp.

French Roast

Not recommended

Additional Information
Organic Colombia - Santander

The La Pradera Estate began with José Rosario Daza. He passed the estate on to his son Hector Daza, who currently manages the farm with his son Oscar Daza.
In the future they expect his sons, Oscar Duban and Edward Yesid, will continue to maintain the coffee growing tradition at La Pradera Estate.

The estate is 100% Organic and Rainforest Alliance certified.
The farm has over 350,000 coffee trees which are organic certified and contain a combination of castillo, colombia and caturra varieties from which this lot comes.
Oscar applies 2 x 10 kg of organic compost to each and every coffee tree, which explains why the plantation has such a healthy appearance and quality yield.

La Pradera is located in Aratoca, Santander, at an altitude of 5,577 ft. and higher.
It is also in close proximity to the Chicamocha canyon which provides warm winds, very low humidity, and good sunlight.

The family's coffee cultivation tradition and harvesting techniques continue to improve year over year.
