Dulima - Colombia Washed
Roast Profile:- Medium/Light
The Colombia Dulima comes from a collection of 80 smallholder farmers in the multiple farms across North/Central Huila & Tolima.
After each harvest, the farmers come together at the Dulima washing station to compile their crops together before the coffees go for sorting and grading. Doing this collectively each farmer can make more money from their harvest along with helping the washing station reinvest money back into their local community.
A beautiful example of classic washed Colombian coffee with smooth and clean mouthfeel going to flavour notes of milk chocolate, red currant acidity and a lasting hobnob biscuity finish.
The spread of coffee planting throughout Colombia in the early 19th century is attributed to a priest who made coffee planting a penance for his parishioners. It worked!
Colombia is among the largest producer of coffee in the world and was number two behind Brazil for decades. The Tolima growing regions are named after the Tolima district, which was home to the Pijaos people before the Spanish arrived. The Pijaos were known among the Spaniards as fierce defenders of their homeland, which they called Dulima.
