The dramatic beauty and lush green rolling hills surrounding the town of Tarqui characterises the Huila region in the south west of Colombia so well.  The town sits in a valley enveloped by these emerald green hills which are the home to some truly amazing coffees. They are also home to some amazing small farmers, almost always small scale with farms usually only one or two hectares in size. 

Working collectively has been one of the ways that these small producers have gained visibility and a reputation for producing delicious, consistent coffee.  Tarqui’s small Asociación De Productores De Cafe El Paraiso is made up of only seventy-two members and is a great example of how a quality eye combined with traditional methods can deliver excellence. Each lot might have a slightly different mix of the members coffee and this selection combines the coffee of four neighbouring farmers.

The flavour profile of El Paraiso personifies all that is delicious about Huila coffees.  A sugary sweet butterscotch foundation sits harmoniously with an orange-like citrus structure.  Ever-appealing further flavours of stewed apple, milk chocolate and cranberry roll across the palate.  We've stretched the length of this roast to focus more on balance and caramelisation.  This raises the perceived sweetness, balances the citrus and opens up lots of options for brewing at home with different machines, or for serving with milk.
