It's made up of a mix of three varietals across Caturra, Columbia and Castillo. This is a very common mix of varietals for Colombian coffees to grow; a choice that is suited to the soil types in Huila and varietals that generate a high yield from this origin. It's a washed coffee and has been very well processed, which really shows in how much clarity and definition this coffee offers in the cup. It's a fantastic example fo balance across body, sweetness and acidity.
Profile (Filter roast):
Miravalle is a very versatile coffee that we intend to roast for both espresso and filter. This roast is the filter version, which we develop to around 19% in the late stages of first crack to highlight bright acidity and more acute flavours. We roast this coffee fairly light which draws out a lovely toffee sweetness and really clean red apple acidity that sits nicely in the background.
Miravalle is one of six small farms run by the same group of small producers (Miravalle, Rosal, Monte Bonito, Chillurco, La Herencia and Providencia). It is located in the south of the Huila region in and around the Colombian Massif; known colloquially as Nudo de Almaguer - the group of mountains within the Andes of south central Colombia. This is one of our favourite locations for Colombian coffee, due to it's exceptional growing conditions; a product of it's diverse microclimate and super fertile soils.
