The coffee growers of Los Vascos descend from early northern spanish settlers, with Los Vascos translating to “The Basques”. Their ancestral cuisine combines strong aromatic and natural sweet flavours like cherries and dark wines, notes of which can be tasted in the profile of their coffees today. The growers of this region consistently produce high quality coffee and continue to seek out ways to improve what they do.

Alberizon Prada, owner of Finca Tres Esquinas, grew up with coffee. His parents were coffee growers, and he was raised in and among the coffee trees. Today, he works on his own farm with his wife, applying everything that he learned from his parents to produce specialty coffee.

For Albeirzon and his family, high quality coffee means aiming to have fewer bean defects caused by actions on his farm. He achieves this by focusing on specialized tree care, picking only mature cherries, better post harvest techniques and investing back into his farm infrastructure.

They plan to increase the quantity of available coffee, while also increasing the quality of what they harvest. He wants to start replacing his Castillo trees for Caturra because he has noticed that Caturra is more productive on his farm.

Albeirzon is member of a cooperative called ASOTBILBAO, a group of dedicated producers committed to the sustainability of coffee as well as the soil in which it grows.

The location

Coffee from Colombia

Colombia is one of the largest coffee producers in the world and benefits greatly from having one of the most unique and complex set of micro-climates of all coffee producing nations.


The Tolima region of Colombia

The word ‘Tolima’ comes from the local indigenous language and means a “river of snow or cloud”.

Farm processes

Washed process

Machines are used to remove the flesh from the coffee cherry before being fermented in water, washed again, and finally sun dried. This process tends to result in more distinct, cleaner flavours.
