apricot, butterscotch, tangerine

Hand selected by our Head of Operations Simon on his research and buying trip to Colombia, we are excited to have secured the entire lot as an exclusive offer to Merlo customers. Fresh, clean and juicy with sweetness and light citrus flavours, El Aguacate is well structured with great complexity and a lingering finish.

Arnulfo Botina has been growing coffee for over 60 yrs and grows his crop by hand, from planting to picking and processing. A Cup of Excellence winner in 2005, Finca El Aguacate was devastated by the coffee rust disease, only returning to specialty coffee in 2013. This special crop is a testament to his persistence and expertise.
