Mr LGB Winter 2015

The idea of our Mr LGB blend is having 2 (or 3) fully washed coffees, for clean and bright cups.
This Winter version is very well balanced, cause it has a nice creamy mouthfeel on top. 
And it loves milk!!

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga Sedie (60%):
The small farmers that live in the Konga area bring their coffee to the Sedie station. On average, each farmer owns 2 hectares of land. Besides growing coffee, all of them have some additional subsistence crops. Some of them raise cattle as well. Acacia, Podocarpes and Cordial Africana trees are also grown on the land to provide shade for the coffee plants. All the picked cherries are processed at the Sedie station and then stored in a local warehouse before they are transported to Addis Ababa.

Colombia Huila Iquira Castillo (40%):

Iquira is a municipality located in the Huila Department in Colombia in the center West of the country. This part of the country has been difficult to travel to over the last ten years and is still a little dicey and pretty remote. Coffees from here, when done right, are very spectacular though.
Farmers in this region have slightly larger farms than most in the south, sometimes 10-15 hectares of land. They pick, pulp, ferment and dry their coffee on raised beds with parabolic covers. They tend to work similar varietals, some old, some relatively old and some new but the style is pretty much the same.
