colombia cup of excellence lots are in

Our Colombia Cup of Excellence lots have arrived! Colombia Cup of Excellence #3 – El Placer is a bright and delicate cup, while Colombia Cup of Excellence #12 – El Descanso has more heft, a rounded flavor profile with a winey hint. We had this lot vacuum packaged and boxed in 5 kgs, then we rebagged them upon arrival here. The reason, instead of shipping them in regular burlap, is that Colombia is experiencing port problems, which can result in a lot being “stuck” for a couple weeks in a humid climate: not good for the cup quality! Anyway, the lot arrived in beautiful condition. This was not the case with our Honduras CoE lots this year, which are unusable, and still sitting on the rack at the warehouse awaiting some resolution.
