La Pradera - 1

Next in our showcase of modern Colombian coffee is La Pradera from Herrera, Tolima! Jose Hernán Quintero has quietly paved an exemplary path since he started producing specialty coffee in 2005. His dual passions of reforestation and creative processing impressed us during our visit last September. La Pradera first featured as a subscriber exclusive back in 2019. As part of our long-standing purchases from Herrera (best represented by the “Meridiano” group lots you’ll see in Red Brick), we now aim to build repeat single-farm purchases in that same community. José Hernan became interested in the honey process for its minimal usage of water. He elaborated his protocol into his signature three-step fermentation process, which gives a clean blueberry flavour to this elegant Yellow Bourbon variety. We taste creamy tropical and floral notes in this spectacular springtime filter.
