The latest from Kaito's Yellow Collection, Finca La Virginia, hails from Colombia's well known Huila coffee producing region. Producers Neider and Maribel Criollo have cultivated a dynamic cup with round caramelized sugar notes accentuated by tropical fruitiness.
Developed just enough to accentuate its natural sweetness and complex flavours, this light-medium roast single origin Colombian coffee is best enjoyed black, and lends itself beautifully to filter or immersion methods.
In order to provide you the freshest coffee possible, all orders received up to and including Sunday will be roasted Monday and shipped Wednesday.
