A Natural? A Colombian Natural? Yep, and it’s brilliant. We were a bit dubious when this appeared on our importers offer list as typically Natural beans = Africa, not South American origin - But I’m glad the producers here bucked the trend with this bean.

If you’ve been lucky enough to enjoy our Rocko Mountain in the past then this is for you, it’s a classic Natural, bright and vibrant with strawberry, peach and milk chocolate and raisins to round off the finish, lovely!

The bean comes from the Kaizen growing programme which has been setup by Lohas beans to look at improving methodology and the standards of production, by empowering growers with the technical knowledge and education on the formal process of producing high quality coffee. This natural is compromised of two producer groups, La Pradera from Santander and Agroprocem from Planadas in Tolima. These groups only produce small amounts where the processing and drying of the cherry is monitored by the trained staff who cup and select the best lots. These lots are then sent to the centralised Kaizen team under Lohas who cup and select from the best lots for export.

Please note 1kg will be shipped in two 500g bags to aid eventual freshness.
