ORIGIN:
I first heard about Amparo Botina’s El Encinal farm after it was featured at the 2016 US Barista Championship and after roasting it, I certainly understand the hype. Her farm sits in a valley with the Los Arrayanes river at the bottom fostering a perfect pocket climate for growing some wonderfully structured coffee. This past year, she installed a covered raised bed system on her farm, increasing both the intensity of flavour and moisture stability!

FLAVOUR:
Amparo Botina’s coffee is such perfect representation of Nariño with its sparkling citric acidity against fruit sugars and a light warming spice. The cup opens with lovely redpear and red plum notes that work perfectly with its lemon acidity. There is a great deal of caramel and black tea base notes that give way to a long rose water, almond cookie, and marzipan finish.
