Lying on the western slope of the western Andes Cordillera is Tarso, a town in the department of Antioquia, 95 Kilometers southwest of Medellin. In this region the Botero`s family have been growing coffee for 2 generations. For Colombian standards they are medium size producers, with almost 200 hectares planted with coffee, all at around 1450 to 1800 meters above sea level. The entire volume of cherries is processed in a central wet mill, allowing for a very homogeneous quality.
We have sampled and cupped the coffee and found it to have a balanced cup, with very good body, medium high acidity and even a slight “chocolate” after taste. Obviusly the most interesting point beyond the cup, is the large, homogeneous volume of coffee that can be sourced here. The crop cycle in Tarso is approx 80% from Oct to Jan, and 20% from April to June.
