Colombian filter coffee, El Ilanete
June 26th 2018
Young farmers who are willing to change, adapt and improve brings us new and exciting taste profiles from Colombia.
El Ilanete is an interesting coffee for many reasons. The farmer Juan Saldarriaga took over his family farms few years back in Antioquia area in Colombia. He then started a small project with other young farmers in the region. The two farms Juan manages are 60 hectares each in altitudes from 1400 to 1800 masl where he experiments with different cultivars in different altitudes. Antioquia is known for solid but maybe slightly boring coffees. However Juan’s will to change, adapt and improve to meet the future demand on quality is a proof that there is a lot going on at the moment and this coffee is a example of that.
El Ilanete is heavy and fruit driven coffee with taste of tropical fruits and dark forest berries.
