Colombia La Piragua


How do we feel about this coffee?

Like the crisp feel of the first fall wind or the rush of an ocean wave, La Piragua has a blast of vibrancy that resolves into a zen-like profile with a layered creamy texture and a warming syrupy sweetness.

Coffee Story
Producer Alexander Vargas began working on his family-owned coffee farm, later purchasing his farm, Finca La Piragua, in the Palestina area of the Huila region. He adapted the land and built it into a coffee plantation from scratch, planting his coffee from seed. He owns his processing equipment, which means he de-pulps all his coffee cherries the day after picking, puts the coffee through a double fermentation, and then dries it to a specific moisture content using a parabolic drying bed.

This specific Pink Bourbon variety’s origin is a little mysterious, the shape and size of the green coffee itself are quite small, long, and thin, and the cup profile is more akin to that of a Typica, Gesha, or Ethiopian Landrace variety than that of a Bourbon. But Colombian coffee farmers have kept cultivating it because it tastes so darn good!
