Sisters Surprise 'El Chocó'
Another gem from Colombia, this time ism Velvet coffee. A full-bodied coffee with notes of hazelnut and dark chocolate.
- 100% arabica
- direct trade via Velvet coffee
- not BIO but the area is so inhospitable and difficult to access that in reality few pesticide sellers have found their way to this region
Chocó is a stunning but underdeveloped region due to its inaccessibility. The locals are very happy with this collab, allowing them to export their coffees.
REGION & ALTITUDE
This coffee is grown between 1700 and 1900 metres, near Carmen de Atrato in Chocó. Chocó is a department in western Colombia, a beautiful region with unique ecosystems and untapped natural resources. Yet this is a very deprived region because no further work has ever been done on a major highway that would connect Chocó to the nearest major city of Medellín.
As a result, the population of Chocó is cut off from urgent medical care, a reliable electricity grid, sanitation, potable water and food. So the producers of this coffee are very happy with the cooperation that Velvet coffee started.
