This lot is the collective work of 50 small producers from the town of Gaitania, which sits on the nutrient rich slopes of the Nevado del Huila volcano. The coffee production here carries risks due to the activity of local, anti-government guerilla groups but this co-op has persevered and focused on growing high-quality coffee as a means to secure their livelihoods and futures. Each farmer has 1 to 2 hectares of land and manages the wet milling, fermentation and drying of the crop at their own farms, before delivering to a centralised dry mill for further processing and sale. Together they produce about 1,000 70kg bags of coffee per year, and over the years several of the members have placed in the Colombian Cup of Excellence. We hope you find this small lot as exciting as we do!
