Colombia

La Falda

Guillermo Rojas grows his coffees in Acevedo, Huila, Colombia. Acevedo is located in the south-easternmost corner of the Huila department of Colombia, where the Colombian Andes split into three distinct mountain ranges - the western, central and eastern ranges. High elevations, plentiful rainfall and access to water catchments, soils full of nutrients, and moist cool winds all provide excellent growing conditions.
One of several coffee growing regions in Colombia, Huila is perhaps the country’s best-known producing department. Huila produces some of the country’s most naturally complex and delicate cups, and small farmers here generally have good access to resources, including exporters who connect them with international buyers. While visiting the area around San Agustin in early 2018, we found a couple of excellent coffees, which will be with us later this year. Huila today generally offers access to a host of delicious coffee experiences and tourist attractions. However, like most parts of Colombia, the area was affected by widespread violence between the 1990s and the early 2000s. Since then smallholder farmers have gained better access to international markets, and specialty grade coffee has become an increasingly popular aim among small farmers.

Colombia

Huila

Farms are predominately smallholder owned and over the past ten years have made concerted efforts to produce specialty coffee that reveals the full character of the region’s terroir. Growing conditions near the municipality of San Agustin benefit from a location near humid and subtropical forests, which make coffees from here aromatically complex with citrus, caramel, green apple and honey notes. Selective manual harvesting, better processing, and careful post-harvest sorting all contribute to increasing recognition of the region’s high quality production.

Like many other regions in Colombia, life in Huila was severely affected by widespread violence, which plagued Colombia between the 1990s and the early 2000s. In 2010 the Colombian government initiated a support programme for farmers who had been displaced following military confrontations. A central aim was to ensure that land would be returned to its rightful owners and to provide these people with the resources to restart agricultural production. In some cases this has also meant that growers have been provided with the means to move from commercial to specialty grade coffee production, which reaps a considerably higher market price.

Process
Washed

The washed process involves completely removing both the cherry and the mucilage from the outside of the parchment with the use of friction, fermentation and water. After being harvested, the coffee cherry is then sliced open by either a metal or a sharp plastic blade. The two seeds (also known as beans) are pushed out of the cherry, which leaves the seed with mucilage as their outermost layer. It is essential in the washed process that all mucilage is removed from the seed which leaves only the flavor that developed in the cell structure of the seed prior to processing.

coffee

It's a fruit

High quality coffee cherries grow at high altitude in tropical regions around the world. Just like any other fruit, as soon as it is picked and processed, the coffee’s quality will start to degrade, and the bright flavours we so enjoy will start to fade. It is for this reason that we at La Cabra choose to reflect the rapidly varying seasonality of coffee so closely in our offering. From Ethiopia and Kenya in high summer, to Costa Rica and El Salvador in autumn, you can be sure of transparent and fresh coffee experiences, whatever the season.
