Rich and smooth

A remarkably balanced single origin with lingering citrus notes, delicious however you brew your coffee.
Flavour Category
citrus & floral citrus & floral
High quality coffee has wide ranging, naturally occurring taste notes. The dominant flavour profile in this coffee is Citrus & Floral. Coffees in this category have zesty citrus flavours and the scent of flowers including honeysuckle, jasmin, dandelion and nettles. Often prominent in washed coffees, the traditional processing method in Ethiopia.
Roast
This coffee is a medium roast. Roast level influences the flavour and body of coffee. Darker roasts are fuller bodied, lighter roasts brighter. A medium roasted coffee bean is medium brown in colour. It retains many of the flavour profiles of the natural bean but also gains some sweetness and body from a longer roast.
Quality Score
85.25
Coffee scoring over 80 on Speciality Coffee Association scale is considered High Quality, Speciality Coffee.
Best Brewed As
cafetiere
This coffee is best brewed as a cafetiere (French press). All our coffees can be brewed using any method, but this is our recommendation for a method which suits the coffee particularly well.
espresso
This coffee is best brewed as an espresso (coffee shop type machine or a bean to cup). All our coffees can be brewed using any method, but this is our recommendation for a method which suits the coffee particularly well.
filter
This coffee is best brewed as a filter (cafetiere, pour over, aeropress, drip, etc.). All our coffees can be brewed using any method, but this is our recommendation for a method which suits the coffee particularly well.
Processing Method
This coffee was processed using the washed method. Post-harvest processing influences the taste profile. Washed coffees are brighter, naturally processed are sweeter and honey processed are somewhere in between.

More about this coffee

Centuries ago, a warrior tribe ruled the land this coffee grows on. This coffee is named after them – Timana. A rich and balanced espresso with flavour notes of plum, molasses, turkish delights and barley. If you enjoy your coffee with milk, look out for flavours turning to dried fig, toast and a lingering fudge taste. This is a great coffee for filter too with an interesting combination of flavour notes ranging from plum, white grape and a hint of lemon. Very sweet and smooth mouthfeel that will leave you with an enjoyable toffee-like taste on the back of the tongue. Delicious!

Asprotimana

Colombia

Timaná is a municipality located in the South of Huila, Colombia, about a 180 km away from Neiva. Surrounded by the Central and Cordillera Central and Occidental ranges of the Colombian Andes, the area boasts good soils and high altitude - the perfect environment for growing speciality coffee.

In 2001, ASPROTIMANA was formed, standing for The Association of Timaná, in Spanish. Back when they were founded, they were a co-operative of 32 farmers with a common goal to create socio-economic stability for coffee farming families in the region. Today, the co-operative has grown to incorporate around 220 members, with Robinson Figueroa as the co-operative’s general manager.

The farmers in the ASPROTIMANA co-operative are trained to high-standards in agricultural practices – not only focussing productivity and quality, but also environmental sustainability. These traits make ASPROTIMANA an excellent partner in growing high-quality Colombia coffee, and Union has been working with the co-operative since 2003.

Speciality coffee has found a home in not only the farms surrounding Timaná, but also in the community of the farmers, with speciality coffee shop being built in the village - creating employment for local young people and displaying the delicious coffee which is grown in the area.
