Colombia: Cauca Regional Select - QuillsCoffee

Colombia: Cauca Regional Select

Regular price $18.00 SALE

The Regional Select Program was created to highlight the unique profiles we have found that are inherent to specific microregions within Colombia. The primary difference between the Microlot Program and Regional Select is the preshipment cupping score.

This program adds yet another tier to our  partners at Cafe Imports' stratified-buying structure in Colombia, designed to further reward quality. As the coffees are received at origin, they are separated based on quality and local areas.

The separations look like this:

Regional Select: 84–86 pts
Microlot Program: 87–89 pts
90 Points Program: 90+ pts


We think that the terroir or soil, sun weather, and placement on the planet contribute largely to the flavor of these coffees, when they are picked ripe and handled properly. These coffees are selected by cup and then blended, like a Rhone wine or a local honey that comes many fields in a 4-mile radius.
