"This gem from southern Huila has a profile unique to that region. It is big and full bodied, with a chewy, dark caramel syrupy texture. Upper echelon coffee with a big personality to be sure."

Background Details

Coffee cultivation from small family owned farms is the backbone of production in Colombia. This traceable community blend with a vibrant regional profile comes from 15 producers with small farms in the municipality of Guadalupe within the department of Huila. Each producer has their own micro-mill where they carefully harvest cherries, depulp, fermented between 17 and 20 hours, wash and gently dry the parchment on raised beds. While individual producers have designed farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit their needs, they banded together for crucial logistical demands for things like warehousing and milling coffee for export to the international market, which provides better income for everyone to reinvest in their farms and strengthen their families’ livelihoods.
