About Our Colombian Medium Roast Coffee
Our Colombian medium roast coffee is a blend of Bourbon and Castillo coffee. Both varieties are grown on Finca Silencio in the high rainforests of Risaralda, Colombia, at an altitude of 1850 meters above sea level.
This Colombian medium roast coffee is smooth and easy to drink. At the same time, this blend delivers a complexity of flavors that include nuances of black cherry, persimmon, cinnamon, and spiced vanilla. These flavors link back to Finca Silencio’s high altitude and rich volcanic soil. The region’s coffee-growing climate is known for producing specialty coffee!
You can notice the coffee’s sweetness right after your first sip! We encourage you first to drink this coffee in its basic form to appreciate the natural sweetness of the coffee fully.
Coffee Varietals In Our Medium Roast Colombian Coffee
This variation of C. Arabica originated in Yemen along with Typica. The French attempted three times to cultivate this variety in the island of Bourbon, now called reunion. Bourbon coffee beans shipped to southern Brazil, where they thrived and dispersed the type throughout central and South America. Bourbon coffee was made famous as one of the most desired coffee varieties available, with a propensity to produce fruity, sweet cups while also being highly productive consistently. Bourbon coffee has sub-varieties that can be seen by looking at the color of the cherry. They include red bourbon, yellow bourbon, and pink bourbon. At Finca Silencio, we produce both red and yellow bourbon.
Castillo coffee is a registered Colombian coffee variety. This coffee was made for Colombian coffee growers because it is sustainable and disease-resistant. The variety is tailored to adapt to Colombia’s unique and diverse coffee-growing regions and it is found throughout the country. We grow Castillo Rosario, a sub-variety that is adapted to our specific region in the Eje Cafetero. This adaptability is one of the reasons our medium roast is so well balanced and is naturally sweet. Since this variety is the perfect match for our microclimate, the coffee cherries can fully develop without interruptions and ripen which creates a sweet cup. The proper ripening of the coffee cherry results in a sweeter cup of coffee!
