Timanco is named after the region it is grown, Timana. Surrounded by the Andes Mountain range and Magdalen and "Golden" rivers. The convergence of all of these geographical features has resulted in the coffee from this region being both balanced and complex. The growers themselves are descendants of three indigenous tribes who worked together to rebel against the Spanish conquerors.
This is also our first coffee from the legendary exporter Caravela who do amazing work in the coffee industry. Admittedly we have gone through a lot more Colombian coffee this year than we had ever anticipated. We definitely didnt intend to buy this when we were trying to source a Nicaraguan for this season, but we were all blown away by the quality of this coffee that we had to get 10 bags of it anyway. Based on only two weeks of testing my only regret is that we didnt buy more. Its exceeded our expectations and making us feel humbled to have it with us.
