Our Apothecary Collection is comprised of four competition level coffees we bought from two young producers that Santiago met while in Colombia in the fall, Nestor Lasso and Jhoan Vergara. We selected these four coffees to compete with this year and have finally decided to release what we have left after competition season! These four coffees are truly exceptional. 

Nestor and Jhoan are producers who are chemists in their own right- dedicated to producing delicious, high end coffees with innovative processing methods which enhance the flavour profiles and really showcase the attributes of the region and varietals. 

Jhoan Vergara puts an immense amount of effort and care into his coffee. In fact, his farm is one of the most impressive coffee farms Santiago has visited. This varietal, Caturra Chiroso is a mutation that happened in Antioquia. Jhoan planted some on his farm and with the beautiful characteristics of coffees grown in Southern Colombia, paired with his careful processing, this vibrant and tropical coffee will blow your mind. 

This coffee went under an extended fermentation thermal shock process and he was able to imprint some delicious flavours into this coffee through this processing method. Jhoan has put so much care into producing this super tropical and fruity coffee. 

Each jar holds 180g beans.
