Competition coffee
Astrid Medina lot 10 (on 24 kilos). It’s a fully washed Caturra from Tolima in Colombia from our raw coffee sponsor Nordic Approach. ”Astrid Medina won the Cup of Excellence in Colombia in 2015, and this also helped to give the growers in Tolima the reputation and attention they deserve. Astrid and Raul are very switched on and open-minded, always wanting to improve their product. They are keeping the farm in perfect condition, and cons
tantly experimenting and implementing new ideas to improve the processing.” More information about the coffee you can find here: https://hub.cropster.com/store/listings/1589 . Very excited to have this very coffee to the competition and we promise to try roasting it for clarity and present most of the cups. Please comment below if you’ve got some questions.

The coffee will be roasted five days before the competition. None of the competitors will have tried the coffee before the competition day at 1pm. The coffee is roasted by Joanna Alm at Drop Coffee Roasters.
