Background Details

Colombia Valle del Cauca Rigoberto Herrera Natural Laurina Crown Jewel is sourced from a family owned estate located in the municipalities of Caicedonia & Trujilio within the Valle del Cauca department, Colombia. The Granja, consisting of four distinct farms (Cerro Azul, Las Margaritas, La Esperanza, Potosi, and Hawaii), is managed by Rigoberto and Luis, two of eleven siblings following in the footsteps of their grandparents who began cultivating coffee in Valle del Cauca in the 1930s. Rigoberto and Luis meticulously manage the various micro-climates throughout the four farms to ensure optimum adaptability and exceptional cherry maturation for the Laurina variety at Las Margaritas and La Esperanza. The brothers have also embraced innovation at their wet and dry mill to reduce water and fossil fuel consumption. This natural processed coffee is an example of precisely executed methods of drying coffee.
