Alto Palomar is the result of the work of 120 small farmers forming the Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Ecologica Alto Palomar.
The organic farming techniques used to grow these coffee trees attract a great number of insects and, in particular, butterflies that fly around making of this farm a unique and fascinating location.
Its hints of honey, toasted almond and sweet tobacco go along with a rich body and a delicate acidity. Its cocoa finish is pleasantly long-lasting.

The extraction ratio we suggest here is not imperative: you can try to use different doses by reducing or slightly increasing the amount of coffee. Try first 22g and then 28g of coffee for 330g of water and let us know what differences you perceive in the taste of coffee.
