Syrupy and intensely sweet, like a raisin, Lucila Bolaños' coffee pairs red fruit with a clementine acidity.
June - August

When they arrived to the farm twelve years ago, they found not coffee trees but rather cattle pastures. Along with her husband, Marco Antonio, Lucila Bolaños began recovering the two opposing hillsides that make up Finca El Porvenir with castillo trees.
As we walked the farm with Lucila and her family, her son-in-law, Jose, casually harvested banana, plantain, yucca and avocado from the trees that also call home to "El Porvenir" providing shade and windbreak to the coffee trees, as well as food to the Bolaños family.
Lucila Bolaños castillo produce is processed in the typical Colombian small-farmer fashion where it's depulped and soaked in small, plastic fermentation tubs before drying in her on-site parabolic drier.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel. We are verve. Made in santa cruz.
