Colombia Ivan Montoya “La Soledad” [new!!]

Milk chocolate, plum, maple



Another Colombian gem from our friend Juan Carlos at Arango Specialty Coffee, “La Soledad” from producer Ivan Montoya is a delightful washed Chiroso; a rare varietal that has been a Cup of Excellence winner in years past and is identified as an Ethiopian landrace. Ivan grows this coffee in the Antioquia region that he was raised in. We find this coffee to be extremely clean and deliciously sweet, with a silky mouthfeel. Tasting notes from the staff included boysenberry, plum, maple, dark honey, black tea florality and milk chocolate.


From Arango Specialty Coffee: “A native of Urrao, Antioquia, Ivan began his coffee endeavors after inheriting a piece of land from his grandparents called La Soledad. Over the last 14 years, Ivan has developed about 3,000 Chiroso trees and credits the elevation of the farm, over 2,000 meters above sea level, as the secret ingredient to the high quality coffee he produces. In addition, the fertile soil allows for diversification as he also produces avocados and naranjilla.


Ivan is certainly proud of the coffee he produces, but he is even more humbled that it allows him to provide for his aging grandparents.”
