From our dear friends and partners at Pergamino Coffee comes this exceptional filter. Pergamino, founded by the Echavarría Family, have done incredible work building the commercial success of specialty coffee in Colombia through their programs to incentivise quality and improve the livelihood of farmers in the region. Something that makes this lot particularly special is that it was curated for Redbrick, with our team directly involved in the process. We were privileged to spend time with Pergamino in Colombia last year, meeting the producers and tasting coffees to build this blend. Crop from the Echavarría’s own farms and various smallholder producers were selected for their outstanding cup quality and flavour profile. The cool temperatures and high altitudes of the various growing regions ensure optimal sugar development in the cherries. The climate also allows for longer fermentation periods, between 48-72 hours, leading to a more complex acidity in the final cup. Primarily used in our Coffee Coffee blend, it’s with great excitement that we offer this coffee as a filter. El Camino is balanced, sweet and bright with delicate citrus notes and a comforting chocolate body. We hope you love it as much as we do.
