  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    La Colmena - Spanish for “beehive” - sits perched at one of the highest points, in one of our favorite municipalities within the Santa Barbara region, Las Flores. Arturo Paz gave his farm this name upon noticing a reoccurring honey-like sweetness in the coffees — We couldn’t agree more.

    Paz represents a generation of young coffee producers in the Santa Barbara region committed to producing world-class specialty coffee. Having placed in the Cup of Excellence year-after-year, Paz' La Colmena has blossomed into one of the top-producing farms in the country, and a personal favorite of ours at Verve.

    Not only is Arturo an exemplary producer, but a formidable cupper as well. In addition to overseeing his well-manicured lots of Yellow Catuai, Pacas and Bourbon; he’s responsible for quality control at his uncle's Beneficio San Vicente where he - and hundreds of other local farmers - deliver and dry-mill their coffee for export.
