Body     Acidity
Roasted omni for filter and espresso

Lucio was planting different vegetable crops before his neighbours recommended he switch to coffee. Through a bank loan Lucio first acquired the farm, and was able to pay this off through his income earned from the coffee production. Lucio works on the farm with his wife and their several farm hands. His children are currently undergoing their studies. Lucio believes in fertilising his plants well making them stronger, healthier and ready to fight off diseases such as Roya.

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 NariƱo region of Colombia

One of the highest growing regions in Colombia, producing some truly complex coffees

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.
