Cattleya is a regional blend made with coffees from the Tequendama province of Cundinamarca department and the Lengupá province of Boyacá department, both located on the Eastern Andes mountain range, forming the Cundiboyacense plateau.

This Cundiboyacense region is mountainous with altitudes raging between 1100 to 4000 meters above sea level. It has many rivers and lakes and contains a unique Andean ecosystem: páramos (moorlands). 60% of all páramos in the world are situated in Colombia. Thanks to this, complex microclimates are created resulting in high quality agricultural products, especially coffee.

Our coffee is grown between 1,200 and 2,000 meters above sea level, with coffee varieties of Colombia, Castillo, and Caturra. The average farmer in Colombia has less than one hectare of land, so this coffee is made up of 100’s of farmers in the region who pool their coffee and process it in area coffee mills. The coffee is depulped, washed and soaked overnight, and dried either in full sun on patios or in mechanical dryers, depending on availability and climate.

We have found this coffee to be very complex, with bright tropical fruit, stone fruit, floral, and chocolate notes. It has a juicy body and a lingering sweet finish.

Fundamental Coffee Company

Country:  USA

The Fundamental team brings over 50 years of coffee experience to this venture.  It’s hard to last that long in any business without developing both a respect for the hard work of others and a point of view that informs how one goes about his or her daily work.  We aren’t shy about our opinions, but nor do we expect everyone to agree with us.  But we do hope you’ll try our coffee and let us know what you think. 

Our logo, the black circle with a never-ending wave pattern, is a stylized representation of the “third harmonic,” a common concept in music.  The first harmonic is the lowest frequency (the fundamental frequency) produced by a specific musical instrument, and since music and coffee go together and inspire us, we thought this was an excellent logo.  (There’s some cool physics at work in all this stuff about frequencies, sinusoids, and Chladni plates, but the Internet is a better source for that than our Web site.)  

You can reach us directly by email.
