This small lot of coffee arrived in mid-November, new crop.Finca El Triunfo is located in Palermo Huila, Colombia and run by Audon Solano. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,800 meters and consists of 26 hectares in total. Of those 26 hectares, approximately 3 hectares are planted in coffee, with about 4,000 trees of Caturra and 10,000 trees of V. Colombia. This lot comprises both varieties, as they are intertwined within the lots. Part of what makes this coffee so great is Audon’s fermentation recipe; 24/36 hours, meaning the coffee is first fermented in cherry for 24 hours and then de-pulped and dry fermented in the tank for an additional 36 hours. Upon washing, the coffee is laid out to dry in a greenhouse style structure, for approximately 12-18 days depending on the climate.
In 2019 Audon joined an association of coffee producers located in Santa Maria, called Asociación La Victoria. Santa Maria and Palermo are neighboring towns with the same caliber of growers. Asociación La Victoria has over 30 producers as members and they are committed to improving the quality of coffee as well as the quality of the environment. The remoteness of Santa Maria and Palermo has left the growing region unchanged for many years and as a result preserved techniques and varietals. All farmers of Asociación La Victoria grow strictly caturra, colombia or typica varietals. The region remains virtually uninfluenced by the Coffee Federation which dictates much of how coffee is grown in Colombia.
