A third-time showcase with each year tasting better, welcome back La Piramide! Grown on the slopes of the Andes in the southwestern corner of Colombia, La Piramide captures that classic flavour profile of stonefruit and nut & raisin chocolate combined with an apple-sauce like acidity and sweetness. Not only in coffee but agriculture in general, it has become common practice for farmers to opt for higher-yielding cultivars with diminished flavour profiles. With a membership of 450 small-growers from across the Department of Cauca, the producers choose to protect their heritage and grow traditional varieties such as Bourbon, Caturra and Typica. Taking much longer to ripen at these altitudes, cherries build more flavour and display characteristics of crisp acidity and slight citric notes balanced out by the sugary sweetness and elegant texture. Best brewed as a pour-over highlighting its structure and full flavour, La Piramide makes for the perfect start to the day.
