Located in and among the valleys of the Colombian Andes Mountains are thousands of smallholder farms. The altitude, the low-sloping mountainsides, and the attached cloudbanks create an atmosphere ideal for coffee here in the Huila Department. Signature notes of orange blossom among other light citrus are present in the cup, along with cocoa, a medium body, and a clean, balanced finished.
The average smallholder farm here has about 1.5 hectares of coffee land and produces about 50 bags of coffee per harvest. While many of the farmers in this region sell coffee into the market at an almost break-even price, the Gran Galope program incentivizes farmers to produce quality through premiums based on cup scores. These premiums can then used by the producers for improved housing, education, and health care for their families. We buy great coffee, and we feel good supporting the Gran Galope program and the impact it’s having for the farmers who are a part of it.
Ethiopia Worka– Peach, Meyer Lemon, Jasmine
Fruit and Florals. This lot from the Wuri washing station in Worka exemplifies what we look for in great Ethiopian Yirgs. The cup opens with subtle citrus notes, transitions into stone-fruit sweetness, and ends with a clean finish and the lingering scent of Jasmine florals. This lot was a shining star.
