Love excellent coffee but hate having to miss out later in the day? Want to quaff your favourite beverages uninterrupted with no risk of counting sheep? Well my friend, look no further! Our new All Day Bundle will keep you sipping the good stuff around the clock with no pesky missed Z's.
This bundle features two lots from our friends at El Yalcon in the Huila region of Colombia: one caffeinated / one decaffeinated. Designed to keep you satisfied from the first drowsy espresso of the morning all the way to a chilled out Chemex between friends after supper. A delicious selection for anyone who loves juicy acidity, a syrupy rich body and fruity sweetness... any time of the day.
El Yalcon is a Colombian speciality coffee produced by 36 small-scale growers in the municipality of La Plata and Pitalito. These farms range from 1 to 5 hectares and are mostly located at higher altitudes - above 1,500 MASL.
They are also mainly cultivated with traditional varieties such as Caturra.
El Yalcon Decaf has been decaffeinated using the natural ‘Sugar Cane process’. This involves the coffee being immersed in water with a natural solvent that is found in sugar cane which extracts caffeine from green coffee. This results in a smooth, creamy body that is delicious and will surprise anyone who thinks decaf specialty coffee can't taste great.
Last year, we spent time in La Plata and Pitalito in the Huila region of Colombia. Here we visited a few producers who contribute to the collective lot that we know as El Yalcon.
One of the farmers we visited was Gloria Isabel Fiesco Garcia at her farm Finca La Reforma. Her farm currently spans 6 hectares, and she is planting a further 3 hectares at the moment. Gloria has produced coffee for 20 years, after learning the ropes from her grandmother when she was a child. When the coffee leaf rust hit Colombia hard in the 80s, she moved to La Plata and worked as a cook. From there, she met her husband and inherited the farm around a similar time. She’s been there ever since and now has two children.
