This year marks 4 years that we've been working with Augusto Castillo and we are excited once again to share another special lot from his farm Mira Cerros with you! As with past years, the amount we've purchased from Augusto is definitely on the larger side in terms of amounts we buy from any given producer. So this is definitely a coffee that will be around a bit longer than most of our offerings.
Augusto is the first producer that we've started to pre-pay for the coffee we purchase from him. What this means for Augusto is that he has a better cash flow at a time when he needs it - during the harvest when he is paying the pickers that work on his farm. A pre-payment model is something we hope to expand to other producers in the future.
This lot is reminiscent of the delicious cups of yesteryear. Expect super sweet aromatics like candied plum fresh off the grind, leading to flavors of mission fig and toblerone as you sip. Crisp, sweet, and balanced - a lovely cup to snuggle up to with the cooling days of fall.
