Producer MARCO TULIO ADARM
Altitude 2,130 MASL
This lot from Nariño was so delicious on the cupping table and we immediately signed up for 10 bags of it, which is as much as we could get! From the Tablón de Gómez Municipality, or El Tablón as people in the region call it, comes this Caturra from Marco Tulio Adarme and his partner Bella Muñoz. El Tablon is a small community nestled in the Macizo Colombiano, with a strong indigenous influence and culture. Tulio’s 3 hectare farm El Pedregal (translating to The Scree) is unusual in that it sits at a dizzying 2,130 meters above sea level, this creates a special microclimate that results in slow growth and maturation, which helps intensify the flavours in the beans. Even processing and drying the coffee takes longer at these altitudes, on raised beds the washed coffee needs 20-30 days to dry, almost 2 weeks more than at your average farm!
