Colombia Cauca El Aguila is sourced from family-owned farms located in the communities of El Aguila, El Carmen, El Condor and Vialchi in the municipality of Santander de Quilichao within the department of Cauca, Colombia. The producers collaborate with an export company called Banexport to gain access to technical support for best agricultural practices. Banexport has matched these regional producers because of their shared commitment to exquisite coffee processing and loving care for their farms (El Nogal, Bella Vista, El Guadal, La Esperanza, Piedra Grande, Aguacatal, Primavera and Buena Vista), which produce complementary profiles. This coffee exhibits lovely hints of cocoa and vanilla and has a delicate citrusy acidity.
