Familia Santa Cruz comes to us by way of our friends at Red Fox Coffee Merchants, who have been exploring this region and purchasing coffee here for the past decade.  This is the final offering out of two small Colombian lots we will be featuring this Spring/Summer - farms here are historically quite small, only a few hectares in total.  Red Fox has a deep relationship with a cooperative based in and around La Union, known as the FUDAM producers association. The coffee from Familia Santa Cruz is fully washed and wet fermented (submerged completely under water during fermentation) for 22 - 26 hours before being spread out to dry on raised beds.  From the mouths of the foxes themselves: “These are quite possibly the most complex coffees we’ve sourced from the greater area. There is a purity to these coffees that make them different than the rest.” We couldn’t agree more, and all of our initial roasting and brewing tests have absolutely proved how complex and versatile this coffee is.  Very similar to our first release, Alicia Bursano, we’re finding that the flavors of Familia Santa Cruz are complex and vibrant, yet very balanced. Initial taste notes and thoughts: syrupy mouthfeel, chocolate and brown sugar sweetness, plums, apples, cherries, juicy acidity. This is another perfect example of why we love coffees from Colombia.  Enjoy!
