Amparo Maya Portrait

Amparo Maya’s humble farm sits at the high elevations of the Chachagüí region of Columbia. Her coffees have always been a favorite of ours over the past five years, and this year’s washed lot absolutely shines. 

Amparo falls into the vast majority of coffee farmers categorized as “small-holders.” Smallholder farmers usually own between 1-5 hectares of land, where the emphasis is on cash crops and subsistence farming. 70% of the world’s coffee farmers can be characterized as “smallholders.” Amparo Maya manages three hectares of land at her farm El Convento where she grows avocados and citrus fruits alongside her coffee. 

At just above 2,000 meters, her farm is especially high for growing coffee in South America. Although the elevation is right on the cusp of the critical elevation zone for coffee growing, it has its advantages. The high altitude and moderate temperatures in the Chachagüí region come together to create ideal growing conditions. Cherry maturation takes longer in these conditions, allowing the cherries more time to develop sugars, which becomes apparent in the crispness and sweetness of the cup. We are continually blown away by her technique and are excited to share this year’s natural offering.
