  • Get to know who, how and where the coffee that you will sell to your clients is produced. Each coffee goes through a unique process, many times engineered by the producer herself. Acquire the coffee in a direct and consistent manner and praise the value created at the farm.
  • Buying without the unnecessary intermediaries allows the producer to obtain better prices. This helps generate better jobs and more prosperous rural communities.
  • When you buy pre-harvest you allow the producer to produce on demand at an agreed price. This is the most powerful way to motivate investment in quality. In addition, you indirectly support producers to get financing at a lower cost.
  • Support producers who strive for implementing environmentally friendly cultivation practices. It requires a lot of effort and higher costs to protect the environment and put in practice cleaner ways of farming. Support a more environmentally sustainable industry and communicate this to your customers.
  • Specially crafted coffee is not easily available as the big chunk of volume is pulled by commercial coffee, which is often institutionally protected. Therefore, buying crafted coffee is a great option to reward those risk-taking, innovative and revolutionary producers that are committed to conscious and quality consumption.

Terroir: Narino

Located in the extreme southwest of Colombia, this region is one of the best for producing specialty coffee because of its diverse geography. It enjoys various climates depending on the altitude: from the heat of the Pacific plain to the cold of the most mountainous part.

In Nariño, three slopes merge: Pacific, Andean and Amazonian, which means that the physiological conditions of the plants are different from those of the rest of the country and the planet. In most coffee growing areas, 32 weeks pass between flowering and the filling and ripening of the fruit of the coffee tree, while in Nariño this happens between 35 to 36 weeks, which means that the grain ripens more slowly and remains longer on the tree, developing its physiological part much better, which generates a higher concentration of sugars and potential Brix degrees, added to this the special care of the farmers in the production of coffee.

The high fertility is due to the amount of organic material content, of volcanic origin, that the area offers. It has the best particular conditions for coffee cultivation, in terms of water availability, temperature, solar radiation and wind regime. High altitudes and low temperatures force the plant to conserve its sugars. The altitude of these farms can normally exceed 2000 metres above sea level. The temperature of the area is temperate or cold.

  • Altitude (m.a.s.l.) 1490-2100
  • Sunshine (hours/year) 1590-1750
  • Annual rainfall (mm) 1690-1900
  • Thermal Time (cumulative stages 2 and 3) 2140-2470


Caturra is a natural mutation that occurred in Minas de Gerais, of a single Bourbon gene that makes the plant grow smaller.  It is characterised by a low growth habit, short distance between nodes, intense green leaves and lateral branches with abundant secondary ramifications; all this allows its establishment at high planting densities, thus achieving higher yields per unit area.

It is very popular and sought after precisely because of its productivity combined with excellent cup quality. The only disadvantage is that it is quite susceptible to the rust ('roya'), which is why growers must take special care in pest management.

It is especially interesting and with a lot of potential at higher altitudes.  In the cup it is usually very sweet, balanced and intensely aromatic. Its profiles can vary fruity, floral or herbal.
