Rare

The world of coffee is like a pyramid. All of the coffee that Colonna selects and curates sits right up the top of that pyramid. The coffees in this genre are the glint at the very tip of the apex. These coffees are sought after and by their very nature are in short supply.

La Esperanza - Sudan Rume


Finding the perfect conditions for the Sudan Rume was no easy task — the variety is notoriously low yielding, and difficult to cultivate. After multiple tests by Café Granja La Esperanza, Las Margaritas farm was chosen, and what an excellent decision that proved to be.

With ideal soil and altitude the plants flourished in their carefully selected home. Picking occurs only at the peak of harvest to ensure enough perfect cherries for the carefully monitored natural process, culminating in one of the the most unique Colombian coffees we have ever tasted.

A complex and herbaceous cup, subtle notes of coriander lead into sweet papaya with a long, oolong tea finish.
