Arrived June 2017 in GrainPro. This nano-lot coffee is from a 10 acre farm called Finca El Mango located in the Ituango micro region within Antioquia, Colombia located at an impressive elevation of 1800-1900 meters. The producer is a man named Gilberto Giraldo, who was been working in coffee for over 40 years. He first started early in life working for his father on his coffee farm, after getting married he purchased Finca El Mango and began planting coffee on his own, mostly of Caturra and Castillo variety. While all of his children have moved onto different occupations, Gilberto has remained in coffee and has committed himself to the life long work of producing exceptional coffee. Gilberto stopped using chemical fertilizers 3 years ago but cannot afford quite yet to pay for the certification to sell it as such. The farm itself is located in a very rural area where vehicles can not access the roads, so all of the coffee is transported from the farms by mules or horses.
