Colombian El Puente Natural

(2 customer reviews)


This is our second coffee from Colombia, and will be a limited premium gem!

The cooler climate of southern Colombia produces such sweet natural processed coffees. Lower temperatures slow down drying, resulting in juicy red fruits and orange peel notes with a very low citric acidity. A dark chocolate and raisin sweetness quickly overtakes the acidity and left on the tongue is a nice caramel finish with a hint of dried fruit.

El Puente is a pilot project that is supported by community investments in the sustainable development of rural areas.

Given that the economic factor for the producing families near El Puente could have an added value in their coffees, since, from the beginning, those producers that have one or two hectares, do not have a pulping or drying mill on their farms and have to sell their wet coffee. It is there where the mill receives the coffee from the neighbouring producers and pay them at a premium price, even without having the coffee processed. This social impact helps significantly to motivate the coffee farmers to cultivate good quality coffee and how important it is to maintain the harvest very well.

    Me and my best mate have gone on a massive coffee adventure over the past 2 years experimenting with countless Espresso Machines and countless coffee beans! I will say hands down without any doubt in my mind whatsoever that GEGROND is not only a wonderful company to deal with but their Colombian El Puente is truly something so incredible and unique you simply have to try it! We have tried hundreds of roasteries and nothing has come close to this specific unique amazing flavour profile!

    Probably one of the best speciality coffees I’ve tasted! The El Puente is massively complex, but with very clear flavour separation in the right preparation method. Medium, but complex acidity profile and with tons of natural chocolate and brown sugar sweetness. Shines in percolation methods, and I’ve found it to be very malleable with regards to which flavours you can develop with different pour-over approaches – either developing yellow (orange and peach) or red and purple (berries) profiles. Makes ok espresso as well, but is a tad finicky.
    Absolutely fantastic bean and perfectly roasted!
