Pista - Tarqui
This coffee is syrupy and sweet like caramel and expresses notes of dates and of candied fruit.
Produced by the Tarqui collective, this coffee is the fruit of the harvest of 4 producers: Nemesio Ramos, Andres Guarnizo, Yaneth, and Alexander Trujillo. Tarqui is a municipality located south of the Huila region in southern Colombia.
The Tarqui is grown at an altitude of 1900m and is made up of the Caturra, Castillo, and Colombia varieties. It is picked by hand at full maturity and sorted by flotation. It is mechanically depulped and then placed in a water tank to remove its mucilage, before being slowly dried on patios for 10 to 15 days. We apply a medium roast to this coffee to bring out its particularly sweet side while retaining its fruity aromas. Tarqui is syrupy and slightly tart when consumed as espresso, and has a complex and sharp filter.
