We've come to anticipate new Colombian releases from Rosetta Roastery as much as their wonderful Ethiopian and Kenyan offerings. They've had a particularly delicious run of coffees from the Huila region in the last few years, so we're excited to see another special lot from Huila to enjoy.
This coffee is processed using the washed method that was the standard just a few years ago. Lately, we're seeing more experimental processing methods employed, yielding all kinds of wild and crazy flavours, but we often reflect on the fact that Colombia's international reputation for specialty coffee was built on washed lots, processed in very similar (and meticulous) fashions.
Washed coffees tend to yield the cleanest cups (with exceptions on both sides, of course) but also may offer the best way to appreciate the flavour of the coffee that comes simply from its terroir and variety, not to mention farming practices (another area in which Colombia has a strong reputation). A great washed Colombian coffee is still a special thing, so we're looking forward to tasting this one.

Amidst the wide array of innovative processing methods that have emerged within the region in recent years, there's nothing quite like a meticulously processed Colombia washed coffee. The secret to these lovely, clean lots lies in the region's high-altitude farms, rich volcanic soil, and optimal climate.
When roasting, an extended development time unlocks that extra layer of sweetness that sets this coffee apart. With its easy-drinking quality and seamless milk pairing, this coffee is an excellent choice for savouring and enjoying all day long.
Huila stands out as one of the central regions in Colombia offering beautifully distinctive and diverse coffee flavour profiles. This collective lot is the result of the collaborative efforts of five coffee-producing families, a partnership that has only flourished over the last two decades. The farms, including El Cedral, San Antonio, La Union, La Primavera, and La Victoria, focus on cultivating primarily castillo, tambo F6, and colombia coffee varieties which are carefully handpicked at peak ripeness.
The shared aspiration among these producers in conjunction with their partners, Cuatro Vientos, is to invest in the welfare of their workforce, and the development of their farms' infrastructure and machinery.
