Coffee Flavour : Lemon boiled sweets, Dark chocolate, Tiramisu

El Yalcon is a Colombian speciality coffee produced by 36 small-scale growers in the municipalities of La Plata and Pitalito. These farms range from 1 to 5 hectares and are mostly located at higher altitudes - above 1,500 metres above sea level.

They are also mainly cultivated with traditional varieties such as Caturra.

This year we finally got to visit our partners in Colombia. We spent time in La Plata and Pitalito in the Huila region of Colombia. Here we visited a few producers who contribute to the collective lot that we know as El Yalcon.

One of the farmers we visited was Gloria Isabel Fiesco Garcia at her farm Finca La Reforma. Her farm currently spans 6 hectares, and she is planting a further 3 hectares at the moment. Gloria had had a long history in coffee, having produced coffee for 20 years and learning the ropes from her grandmother when she was a child on the farm. When the coffee leaf rust hit Colombia hard in the 80s, she moved to La Plata and worked as a cook. From there, she met her husband and inherited the farm around a similar time. She’s been there ever since and now has two children.

This coffee has an immediate zippy & sweet acidity of lemon boiled sweets. In the finish, a long dark chocolate note lingers, which in combined with the creamy body reminds us of rich tiramisu.
