We are very lucky to have this coffee back again this year.  Liliana Rojas continues to produce incredible coffees year after year.  She's been instrumental in elevating the Santander region as a unique place for specialty coffee. 

Casablanca has been evolving in the more than ten years since Liliana purchased the farm and began directing its operations. She pays equal attention to the management of the fields and of the farm’s infrastructure. The house for employees is well-maintained with bunk rooms and full bathrooms. To renovate the main house, Liliana hired an architect to draw up plans beforehand to ensure that the stability of the structure as well as the design were preserved.

The farm includes streams and a waterfall and is a stunning example of Colombia’s impressive natural beauty. The freshwater from the streams is used to process the coffee harvested on Casablanca, most of which is depulped, fermented, and fully washed in the clean, tile channels of the wet mill. While most farms in Colombia have both a main harvest peak and a smaller fly crop, Casablanca enjoys a more consolidated harvest period.

This year's Casablanca has more pronounced orange blossom and honey flavour.  Last year we were awarded 94 points for this coffee from Coffee Review.
