Colombia Robert Pilliume
PLUM // BUTTERY // ROSEHIP
Robert was a picker in Cauca, near the border of La Plata, until he inherited 2 hectares devoted to coffee from his parents, who have 7 hectares in total. Exceedingly passionate about quality, Robert achieved a degree in coffee production from SENA, the college in the area. Currently, he is studying cupping and is constantly bringing parchment samples from his plot to evaluate and sample roast.
He reminds us a lot of another farmer we work with, Carlos Guamanga, who is the epitome of focus and passion for specialty coffee. The spirit that Robert exudes for his craft is only matched by the quality in the cup he produced this season.
This coffee boasts flavours of plum and rose hip with a delightful buttery texture.
