About the Farmer

The wonderful beans of our Choco coffee are grown between 1400 and 1900 masl. There are two harvest periods, 60% of the volume is harvested between May and July and the mitaca (fly crop) takes place between October and December. Choco is a blend of Castillo, Colombia, and Caturra beans, processed using the fully washed method, fermented between 12 to 16 hours, and dried either in the sun or in a mechanical dryer.

Cauca is well-known for its high-quality coffee production from it's eastern and central micro-regions in the mountains and close to the beautiful 'white' city of Popayan. The altitude of the highlands, and their proximity to the equator and surrounding mountains, protect the coffee from the humidity of the Pacific and the southern trade winds. The result is a stable climate all year round, which, when combined with the naturally rich volcanic soil, results in complex, rich, and sweet coffees.
The region has an astounding 92,500+ hectares of coffee production. The diversity of cultures living in this area is vast and complex, housing indigenous people in the mountains and isolated regions and western colonial descendants in Popayan, the capital city.
