This coffee comes from our new and developing relationship with Carlos and his family in Casa Negra. We are excited to be building a relationship with Carlos and working with him to invest in his local community to help produce high quality coffee, and improve livelihoods. We are working towards establishing a fully fledged direct trade relationship.
We drive a 4km winding road, rough and potholed taking 30 minutes or more to arrive at the farm (finca) in the Santa Monica region of South Armenia, Quindio. Three fincas (Villarazo, Santa Monica, Casa Negra) near one another growing a range of different varietals (Pink Bourbon, Java, Catui & Castillo, Tabi).
Watch our journal and social media for updates and reports as we grown relationships and option in this new coffee origin.
