Colombia – Quinua Bajo by Segundo Alvaro Egas
The coffees from Nariño are unique, this lot is fruit forward with loads of purple fruit and a kind of fruit tobacco finish. It is a complex coffee, that is jammy and intense, a great expression of Nariño.
Segundo’s farm is in the area surrounding Ancuya, one of my favourite towns in Nariño. The farm, Quinua Bajo, is at 2000 masl and this lot is entirely made up of Castillo.
