Product Notes: La Caturrita, which translates to little Caturra, is a unique blend created from different small scale producers located in Huila and Tolima. It is essentially a little bit of each of the best lots our farm partners produce and is made up mostly of small peaberries and beans that are of a smaller grading size. The varietal is Caturra which is an old growth variety that has a really sweet and chocolate forward profile. This coffee is purchased directly from small producers, allowing them to sell us ALL of their coffee and gain top dollar for the quality they grow. Typically, they would have to sell this smaller screen size coffee to the local co-op at a lower price, barely breaking even.
