This special coffee was the 10th 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 one of the stand outs. And it shows in the cup with unique aroma and flavor notes including red stone fruit, coffee blossom, and caramel; a syrupy body; and a crisp acidity. 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.
