About this coffee

Located high in the Colombian Andes, Fincamigos is an experimental farm dedicated to cultivating the most highly sought-after coffee varieties in the world – including Sudan Rume, Geisha and Tabi.

These varieties are well known for their high cupping scores and unique, complex flavour profiles.

Sudan is an ancient variety that was first cultivated in South Sudan’s Boma plateau. One of the main reasons Sudan Rume is not widely cultivated commercially is its low productivity. However, when Sudan Rume is grown commercially it is coveted for its cup quality and relative rarity.

Geisha is a variety that was first documented in the Ethiopian village of Geisha but has become an icon in specialty coffee circles for its unique sweet floral flavours – and record-breaking prices.

At Fincamigos, the coffee cherries are selectively handpicked and pulped, before being fermented in water for approximately 48 hours and then laid on drying beds. The parchment coffee is then sundried for approximately 8 days to highlight the unique floral aromas and fruity sweetness.

This delivers a uniquely aromatic & complex coffee with tasting notes of orange blossom, strawberry & chamomile notes with a smooth, creamy & buttery finish.

Varietals: Geisha, Sudan Rume, Tabi
Process: Washed
Tasting Notes: Orange blossom, Strawberry & Chamomile notes with a smooth, creamy & buttery finish
