Background Details

Colombia Mejor de Huila Andres Ruiz 1720 MT Caturra GrainPro was selected as one of the top lots during the Mejor de Huila cupping competition and auction cosponsored by Royal Coffee and Inconexus. In total, the Inconexus team evaluated 300 samples to find 30 of the best for the international buyers to evaluate. Andres Ruiz produced this lot on his 7-acre farm called Los Pinos, located in the community of La Ermita in the municipality of San Augustin within the department of Huila, Colombia. Andres uses his own micro-mill to process harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee. With his earnings from the auction Andres plans to make additional investments in his mill so that he can more easily process and dry his coffee.
