Piramide is a new Colombian coffee for Plowshares as we transition out of our normal Quebradon coffee from Huila.
Piramide comes from a group of 300 producers in Inzá and wonderfully represents what high quality Colombian coffees have to offer, intense sweetness, red apple acidity, whistle clean, and complex finish.
Inzá is a municipality located in a sacred valley that sits below the elevated mountains that separate Huila and Cauca. More than 14 centuries of history and tradition of native indigenous tribes make Inzá ones of Colombia’s richest archaeological treasures, home to the archeological park of Tierradentro. These indigenous cultures chose Inza as their home because it is a place where many rivers converge, making this territory a fertile and magical place.
Coffee from this region is becoming more prevalent as tensions between the goverment and FARC rebels subside allowing a window for more of this coffee to make it to the specialty marketplace .
This is a great coffee for everyday and all day drinking. You won’t be disappointed. La Piramide is an intensely sweet and balanced coffee, with citric, strawberry, red apple and floral notes, a syrupy milk chocolate body and sugar cane sweetness.
