Arrived last day of May 2020, new crop, just arrived from Colombia in grainpro.
We offered this coffee last season and it was extremely popular and developed a following. We are pleased that we were able to secure more this year and to report we feel the coffee is even better than from the past season. Our connection to the grower and her coffee began last year when a long time friend who imports coffee from Colombia sent us a number of small lots for evaluation which we cupped along with many others arriving this time of year. This coffee made its way through several blind cupping rounds and we decided we would like to have some the small output for our customers and to give recognition to the woman who produced it with the help of her family.
Luzmila, her husband Jhon Elver own and work their very small 4 hectare coffee farm, yet it is larger than the average local farm which has a mere 1.5 hectares. As such their family has more prominence than many of their neighbors. They have been growing coffee for over 27 years, but have been part of local program to improve and promote their coffee for the past 4 years. This year they plan to invest the premiums they are receiving for this coffee in new â€œmarquesinasâ€ or drying beds, in order to dry more of their coffee right on their property near to their home, rather than in a more remote location where they can share drying with others.
