This coffee comes from a group of 6 smallholder producers, led by Gabriel Quilindo, who grow coffee in the community of San Francisco. Located in the municipality of La Plata, in the state of Huila, Colombia the region is found at a staggering elevation of 1,900-2,100m above sea level. San Francisco is a steep, narrow stretch of land that borders the town of Inza, in the state of Cauca. Much like that found in these well-known coffee regions, the volcanic soil in San Francisco is perfect for coffee growing. Farmers here also benefit from year-round cool temperatures, abundant access to clean water, and almost exclusively produce coffee from older Caturra trees in plots of land under 2 hectares in size.
We suggest using this coffee for filter brew methods, such as a pourover, aeropress, chemex or batch brew, (or similar). It's roasted a bit lighter to accentuate the delicious fruitiness and acidity that we love.
