The coffee

Luis Ernesto and Cenaida Nieto have grown this lot at Los Aguacates, a small family farm located at an altitude of 1850 meters in the community of China Alta, in the state of Tolima. The farm was a gift from Ernesto’s father, who now manages it alongside his wife and their son, Jaider. At the start they decided to grow the Castillo variety, which is more resistant to diseases and changes in climate, but produces a lower cup quality. Since their goal was to produce high quality coffee, they are now transforming the farm to only grow the Caturra variety, with a sweeter and more delicate profile.

We hope you love it. We will see you soon.
