The Valle de Cauca region, also known as the Pacific Door of Colombia, is located in the western half of Colombia. It is well known for its beauty and is one of the country‚Äôs most important regions because of its abundance of natural resources.
From a region that only 7 years ago was shadowed by the guerrilla wars to an area that is now flourishing with high quality coffee farms, Finca Potosi is an excellent example of the potential that this region has to offer.¬†Perfect weather, the right altitude, family dedication and hard work are the ingredients for producing an excellent coffee that is shown in its cup.¬†
Grown in an altitude between 4,700- 5,400 feet, the Colombian Valle de Cauca is fully washed and silo dried. This light roasted coffee has crisp notes of bright honey dew melon and almond.¬†Purchase it HERE.¬†
What makes a cup of coffee great?
The enigmatic coffee bean is a puzzle to be studied and enjoyed over a lifetime but never solved. The perfect cup of coffee lingers with sense memory - the rich smell of¬†a familiar coffee house, the touch of a hand, the chill of¬†an early morning walk, the sun rising over the mountains, and of course the coffee itself; brightly acidic, surprising in its sweetness, bold in its intensity, and ethereal in its complexity. At Red Rooster, we love coffee and we are constantly striving to make your next cup the perfect cup. Luckily, it is a mission that is neverending and always satisfying.
