Colombia El Laguito coffee beans – for your next filter brew.
The farm is located in Calarca, Quindio. The region is in the western center of the country. Quindio is renowned for its colourful architecture, pleasant weather, and (most importantly) superb coffee beans. Coffee plantations drive the economy, being the first choice of many coffee roasteries across the world.
This batch of delicious colombian beans are from a microlot. “Microlot” refers to a small lot of coffee cherries that have been chosen for showing unique and interesting qualities. The microlot is given extra care and attention to further develop these rare attributes. There’s only a small amount of coffee the microlot produces so you have to be quick to score a bag of microlot coffee beans.
Colombian coffee beans are seen as some of the best in the world. When you see the landscape, it’s no wonder why. With lush greenery, rich soil and high altitudes – these coffee beans are treated with the most ideal conditions.
In addition to a perfect landscape, Colombian coffee farms are spoiled with perfect levels of rainfall. There are at least 80 inches of rainfall per year complimented with a warm and tropical climate.

These coffee cherries have been handpicked by Andres’ team of farmers. The cherries then take a short road trip to La Pradera where they are exposed to an anaerobic fermentation for 16 hours. For the next 3 days the cherries are placed on concrete patios (or, in mechanical driers if it’s raining). Later, the cherries are dried at 40 degrees C in a Guardiola to obtain ideal moisture content.
These 100% Castillo Colombia coffee beans offer a superb cup profile, presenting a juicy citrus experience. Pour yourself a filter brew and enjoy.
