The last time we rolled out a Colombian, we told you that we love keeping them in rotation here at Halfwit. We weren’t kidding – we’ve got another stellar example of a Colombian coffee in the lineup now, this time from the small municipality of Garzón, known as the “heart of Huila”. We love Huila for many reasons; the diverse microclimates in the region and high altitude make for truly unique coffees atypical of other regions in Colombia. This particular coffee, produced by approximately 37 small-scale growers, stuns with exceptional balance. Particular attention is paid to the processing of this fully washed coffee, which goes through a dry fermentation for about twenty-six hours, and finishes drying on parabolic patios and raised beds. This coffee has notes of spiced pear, vanilla, and buttercream rounded out by a velvety mouthfeel.

NOTES ON BREWING

This coffee is incredibly approachable and versatile, and will taste fantastic on almost all brewing methods. Higher doses will bring out sweet vanilla and caramel notes with creamy body, while lower doses will really highlight the structured acidity and soft pear notes.
