  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    One of the northernmost coffee-producing departments in Colombia, Antioquian coffee history dates back nearly 180 years. In a region historically fraught with turmoil - of the guerrilla and drug-trade variety - Antioquia has sustained itself as one of the larger- exporting departments of Colombia, though its reputation for quantity has not always been matched by its reputation for quality.

    The Urrao region of Antioquia is unique and the quality has been exceptional, especially as of late. In the Valle de Pavón, farmers are rewarded with extremely high altitudes, ranging from 1800 meters in the valley floor, up to 2100 meters. They receive regular rainfall and the temperature ranges are ideal for growing coffee.

    This lot of heirloom Caturra is made up from several smallholder farmers in the region. The heirloom cultivar adds another layer of uniqueness that makes this coffee extra special. What is most likely a natural regression of Caturra, with elongated and narrow cherries that look similar to Typica, farmers in the region have taken to planting their farms exclusively with this heirloom cultivar, which boasts floral qualities and fruit-forward flavors. The coffee was wet-processed, fermented overnight and dried on raised, covered beds called “parabolicos”.
