This coffee is the result of a new project that has sprung up in the La Plata Municipality of Huila, Colombia. La Plata lies in the foothills of the Cordillera Central mountain range, the farms in this group spanning a range of 1800 meters to 2000 meters above sea level. The average farm size is about 2 hectares with less than 10,000 trees planted, Caturra being the dominant cultivar grown, with some Variedad Colombia mixed in. Initial samples from this group have been very promising, some like this one, cupping amazing. This season, the intermediary we work with in Medell_n are helping to finance the buying so that farmers are paid an initial premium up front when the coffee is delivered, and then a second payment once quality tier is determined. This is a custom blend made up of coffees we tasted on a July 2016 visit to the region from producers in Alto San Franciso, the higher elevation area of Vereda (town) San Francisco. Farms in this region start at around 1800 meters, and some towering over 2000.
