Canyon Instant Coffee: Granjeras—a seasonally-rotating selection of women-grown microlots from Colombia. True to the name, granjeras translates to women farmers. We're starting off the Granjeras series with a microlot grown by a favorite producers, Virgelina Perdomo. Virgelina's coffee has round juiciness, sweet caramel body and notes of passion fruit.
What is a microlot? As the name implies, a coffee microlot is relatively smaller than a normal lot, or harvest yield, of coffee. But why is it smaller? Often, microlots are the result of a single farmer or group of farmers dedicating a smaller plot of land to which they can give more time with higher quality of care and attention to detail. The end result is often a higher quality, more valuable coffee.
