Christmas is approaching and per tradition, we celebrate the festive holiday with some extra special beans.
Enjoy your Advent Calendar in company with us! We will post a new video here each Sunday leading up to Christmas.
Happy Holidays from all of us at Coffee Collective
1st Sunday of Advent | Jaime Geisha
Look forward to tasting a beautiful Geisha, grown at the farm El Prado in the mountains of Huila, Colombia.
Here, a lush coffee forest expresses a countless number of green shades. The biodiversity creates a natural circle of life on the coffee farm and the coffee trees thrive with the help of the carefully chosen plant life.
The Casallas family have run the farm for many years and now their son Jaime has taken over for his parents.
The Colombian terroir leaves its fruity fingerprint in the cup which is gracefully backed up by the Geisha’s elegant floral notes.
2nd Sunday of Advent | Daterra Anaerobic
Nothing is left to coincidence at the Brazilian coffee farm in the vast tropical savanna of Cerrado.
Daterra has spent years perfecting their craft, and invested in state-of-the-art machinery taking their coffee to the next level.
Today you are tasting one of their masterpiece coffees, a micro-lot from the very best of their selection, processed Anaerobic Natural.
3rd Sunday of Advent | Jenifer Pink Bourbon
Another Sunday, another exciting coffee! Today we are going to Huila in Colombia.
Santa Maria is located in one of Colombia’s biggest coffee-producing regions. It is here we find Finca La Delicias where Jenifer Osorio and her family produce coffee.
This farm is a prime example of a family enterprise where everyone plays a key role to produce good quality coffee.
Jenifer’s father, Elver, takes care of the agricultural management, while her mother, Gisela, handles the wet mill. Jenifer and her sister, Diana, are in charge of the books and commercialization of the coffee. This coffee is balanced, sweet, and smooth. Very aromatic with notes of rose, pear, and peach melba.
4th Sunday of Advent | Takesi Geisha
Happy 4th Sunday of Advent! We have saved the best for last - literally.
Mariana Iturralde grows coffee at astounding heights! Almost 2.5 km above sea level. At this elevation, everything grows slower, which is a plus if you are producing coffee.
A long and slow ripening period contributes to the incredible intensity and delicate acidity which we find in this coffee, along with a distinct complexity and a wave of fleeting aromas.
Despite growing coffee in such a challenging area, Mariana has managed to produce one of the best-tasting coffees we have come across at Coffee Collective.
Very intense and complex aroma. Clean and honey-sweet with delicate acidity. Notes of apricot, jasmine, and bergamot.
