Clean, juicy and complex with a prominent floral aroma similar to apple blossom and a sweet acidity reminding us of lemon jam and plums.  A lingering, fresh, sugarcane sweetness rounds out the cup.

 

This is an amazing coffee. Everyone involved, producer, Q team and clients alike, agreed on that. Didn’t require much effort, as it was arguably the best coffee LaREB assessed back in 2021.  Clean, bright, transparent; a true representative of how great coffee from Huila is.  It is a proud exponent of its terroir.

What makes a coffee good? Is it the terroir, the variety, the process? Is it a combination of all those factors, or just the virtuosity of the producer?

Julián is most likely a coffee virtuoso, but we do not know it yet. He probably doesn’t either. Julián is a relatively new producer growing many of the same varietals that have yielded amazing cups in the hands of more experienced local producers, with recognition as high as Cup of Excellence finals. But Julian’s cup is superior. Complex, clear, with no room for disagreement. It is probably a result of the lack of glitter, the modest approach. This is a honest, straightforward coffee, intended to be like that. The first step in the career of someone with a possible bright future ahead.

Sometimes we’d rather be lucky than good. But is it luck when we predetermine the result? For us, it is definitely serendipity. The power of intention.
