Cumbia often invokes the idea of fast rhythms and colorful dances, and this coffee is the perfect representation of both. The fruit you taste from this washed process is melodic, purposeful, and seductive. Going the minimalistic route (as seen by designer Stephen Haas for the 1968 cover of Bongos Trompeta Voces Cuerda), we decided to strip down trumpets and drums and showcase the simplicity that makes them stand out.
Laboyano is the top-of-the-line group lot from the Coffee Quest station in Pitalito, always with a generous portion of Pink Bourbon inside. The name of this coffee comes from the Laboyano’s Valley, as the area around the city of Pitalito is called. The term Laboyano is, indeed, the colloquial Spanish word to refer to people from this region. So, the name is a tribute to the hard work of several dedicated Laboyanos who produce these high qualty coffee varieties.
The town of Pitalito is strategically located for the coffee trade in Southern Huila, perfect for receiving coffee from the surrounding towns, Acevedo, Bruselas, Palestina, San Agustin, Oporapa, Timaná, and Suaza, all well-known names in the specialty coffee industry and towns where The Coffee Quest has already been buying coffees for years.
Three Keys Coffee speaks a language that’s sophisticated yet accessible to everyone who’s willing to slow down and share a cup.
