New crop arrived mid November 2016. This is the first of a group of micro and nano lots that we purchased from regions in Colombia. This one came to us from an importer colleague and we expect to have it in stock through the remainder of the calendar year. The other coffees that will follow were evaluated and purchased at origin during a regional competition, but more about that later. For now enjoy this wonderful example of what Colombia is capable of producing.

This very limited microlot comes from the Bruselas region within Huila, located in the Southern region of Colombia. The farm which sits in the village of Guandinosa and is only a mere 3 hectare is called San Isidro and is owned by producer Hernain Bejarano. Altitude is 1650 meters, about 5400 feet, above sea level. The varietals that make up this microlot are Caturra and Colombia. After harvest coffee cherries are traditionally washed, wet fermented for 22 hours before being transfered to raised beds under parabolic cover for drying.
