This special coffee was the 1st place winner in Antioquia’s Best Cup! So many of you loved this coffee from our Coffee for Peace box set and asked how to get more. Here you go! Out of all the coffees submitted from the Antioquia region in Colombia, this was the stand out. And it shows in the cup with unique aroma and flavor notes including jasmine, grape candy, honey, and cream soda; a creamy dreamy body; and a sparkling acidity. It truly is a special coffee. This coffee is also part of the Coffee for Peace program, an innovative program promoting sustainable development for farmers affected by violence in Colombia. This program supports farmers in sustainable farming and quality-forward innovations while promoting the sale of fully traceable specialty coffee.
