ORGANIC COLOMBIA KACHALU Single Origin Coffee Beans
100% Arabica roasted coffee beans
Growing Altitude: 1200-2000m
Process: washed, sun-dried
Aftertaste: caramel, chocolate, fruits
Origin and plantation: in 1999, 14 coffee farmers started to collaborate by founding a cooperation to produce sustainable and eco-friendly coffee. Their goal: to maintain the habitat of the animals and avoid a contamination of the lo cal water reserves. Their cooperation was called “Kachalu”, a word that they themselves interpreted as “Hope”. Their hope was and still is today that their Kachalu will continue being demanded even in a worldwide coffee crisis.
The Kachalu plantations are located in the middle of the South American rainforest, in the heart of Colombia, and profit year-round from the humid and warm climate. Compared to Brazil, Colombia has the special advantage that you need not fear any bouts of cold, which could destroy an entire harvest.
Character and taste: considered that this coffee is from South America, it has a surprisingly strong, almost spicy-earthy character. The intensive sweetness of complex aromas from caramel to chocolate is rounded off by a sweet hint of fruits.
