Coffee of Origin has discovered that one type of Arabica bean, a varietal called Caturra, creates a wonderfully smooth cup of coffee. They purchase from the Santander region of Colombia only from farms that use time-honored, natural, pesticide free methods to cultivate their coffee. Each bean is hand-picked, hand-sorted, hand-selected and only then roasted in Colombia. Enjoy this 2.5 oz tasting of their high-end beans and find yourself begging for more! https://coffeeoforigin.com/
