Andino Leal is grown by a band of producers in the hills above Bruselas Huila. Andino Leal is delivered in full by the producers to a collection warehouse, where the coffee is then purchased, graded for quality, and the producer parts ways.

Uriel Scarpetta, who has worked for the warehouse for the last decade, is responsible for cupping each lot and paying each producer. No coffee receives approval for Andino Leal without his say.

His role is so integral to the overall quality and commerce in our flagship Andino Leal, that I thought we would honor his role by offering him the opportunity to make a custom micro-lot quality blend for Merit.

And he did! The final product couldn’t have come out better. He isolated three lots, two pink bourbons for sweetness and fruitiness, and one lot of caturra for spiciness and low tones, and what came out was incredible. Bright and Balanced, floral and spicy with a hint of fruit in the finish.

How light/dark do you roast your coffee?

Our coffee ends up being a light-medium roast which makes it ideal to explore using a variety of different brew methods!

Our roasting philosophy focuses on balancing sweetness, acidity, and body, emphasizing flavor over color. This approach brings out the natural tastes and unique characteristics of the coffee's origin

What's the difference between Washed & Natural process?

In simple terms, when we talk about "washed" and "natural process" coffee, we're referring to two different methods used to prepare coffee beans after they are harvested.

1. Washed Process Coffee:
- In this method, the coffee cherries (the fruit that coffee beans come from) are first washed with water.
- Then, the outer fruit layer is removed, leaving only the bean.
- After that, the beans are fermented in water to remove any remaining fruit bits.
- Finally, the beans are dried.
- The result is a coffee with a cleaner, crisper taste, often with brighter acidity and more defined flavors.

2. Natural Process Coffee:
- Here, the harvested coffee cherries are not washed. Instead, they are dried with the fruit still on the bean.
- This drying usually happens in the sun, and it can take several weeks.
- After drying, the dried fruit layer is removed to get to the bean.
- Coffee made from natural process beans tends to have a sweeter, fruitier flavor profile, sometimes with a heavier body and less acidity compared to washed coffees.

In essence, the key difference lies in how the fruit is removed from the coffee bean and how this affects the flavor of the coffee. Washed coffees are known for their clarity and vibrant flavors, while natural process coffees are often more complex and fruitier.
