Villa Clabelina #3, Colombia (170g)
Notes: Wild Strawberries, Natural Wine, Plum
Villa Clabelina #3 is from Hernan Prieto’s farm Finca Villa Clabelina, not too far from Juan’s own farms near Bolivar. Hernan and his brother have over 100k coffee trees and have been learning a lot from Juan in terms of diversifying varietals and improving quality, from experimental processing to improved picking. ‘Coffee is an experience, a feeling’ claim the brothers, and when you visit the farm as Simon has, the experience is immediate. It’s the most beautiful coffee farm he’s ever visited, with everything immaculately cared for and attention given to even the smallest of details. Sustainability is a key aspect of their coffee business, which given that the farm has descended through several generations of the family, explains their longevity and success.
Expect raspberry and ripe fruit in the cup with hibiscus florals.
