Microlot Colombia - Finca La Primavera
BLACK CHERRY, VANILLA, DELICATE, FLORAL
12 oz. box of whole bean coffee
Region: San Agustín, Huila
Farm: La Primavera
Producer: Arnulfo Leguizamo
Once in a while, we get our hands on a really exceptional coffee like this one. The care given to producing such a coffee is apparent in the quality and complexity of the cup.
We are working to offer coffees of this caliber more often and with them, more traceability. We love to learn about coffee and we want to share that information with you, the customer, as a move towards increased transparency, traceability, and quality.
Arnulfo Leguizamo is who every cafetero in Colombia should aspire to be: As a member of Asociación Los Naranjos, he is a leader in his community and supports his fellow farmers in their efforts to improve their quality. In 2011, he won the first prize at the Cup of Excellence with coffee from this farm. An unprecedented price of $45/lb was paid for the Cup of Excellence–winning coffee. He continues to be a hard-working, approachable, and generous producer, and an inspiration to others—including his son Diego, who has started managing Finca El Faldon alongside his father. Diego has trained up as a cupper and seeks to be in charge of operations in the future, a multigenerational coffee family.
Recently, Arnulfo has become even more of an innovator and leader in his community, by opening a café.
