Finca El Recuerdo is a farm run by Libio Hoyos in the Huila district of Colombia, an area which boasts the perfect combination of high quality soil and geography to produce specialty coffee.

It’s quickly becoming one of the largest coffee producing regions in the country.

With this delivery we also want to highlight Caravela, a partner of ours on the ground in Colombia who help with sourcing and logistics, but also providing valuable year-round support for producers.

They run a program across seven Latin American countries called PECA (short for ‘Grower Education Program’ in Spanish) which aims to engage the next generation of coffee farmers in an analytical, science-based approach to profitable farm operations, focusing on quality and sustainability.

They also run two ‘virtual classrooms’ in Colombia where producers and their children can take online courses on a range of subjects including agronomy, sustainability, harvesting, and processing.

The majority of the producers we showcase at Sample are family-run or small co-operatives. As a small business ourselves, we’re proud to have partners like Caravela who support small producers and farmers at origin with education and information to help them grow successful, sustainable businesses.

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 Huila region of Colombia

This region boasts the perfect combination of high quality soil and geography and is quickly becoming one of the largest coffee producing regions in Colombia. One of the best regarded regions for high quality, fruit driven coffee.

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.
