Tasting Notes: Citrus, Caramel, Honey, Syrupy
“El Paraíso” is the name of the association working to produce coffee in this region, which translates to “Paradise.” Tarqui’s diverse flora and fauna leads to the area often being referred to in this way by the local community. And given the fantastic coffees grown here, this makes perfect sense.
El Paraíso comes from various small growers located in the region of Tarqui in the department of Huila. Their average farm size is only around 3 hectares per grower. This group is a great example of smallholders working together as a team to produce high quality coffee. Farmers use traditional methods to wash and dry their coffee on their own farms. Tarqui is well-known for its high-quality coffee and distinctive topography.
“El Paraiso has citrus acidity, notes of orange juice and a well-balanced sugary sweet foundation. Perfect balance and clarity.”
