Bilbao - Tolima is one of the most isolated coffee regions of Colombia. Located in the Central Colombian Andes between the vast Parques Natural Nevado and Parque Nacional Natural Cordillera De Los Pichachos mountain ranges.
The area falls in the middle of the conflict zone and was for many years controlled by the FARC who restricted the selling of crops to either the FNC or local Trilladoras and receiving at best only commercial prices.
These are the first lots to come out of this troubled region. We are very happy to have secured them and to be able to add to the reinvigoration of the area.
Creamy body, Caramel, chocolate, panela, floral red fruit, green apple acidity.
Beautifully balanced and very tasty.
