Ferney Quintero, Colombia

On the slopes of the mountains that separate the esteemed Cauca growing region from it's neighbor Huila to the east there lies the Vvillage of San Jose. There the combination of fertile volcanic soil, elevation and climate creates one of the most perfect environs for growing great tasting coffee.

At 1750 meters above sea level, Ferney Quintero carefully tends to his modest 2 hectare farm growing a combination of caturra and castillo variety coffee trees. The cherries mature slowly in the cool mountain air, developing the racy acidity and exciting flavors we've come to love from Colombia. They are then depulped and fermented overnight before being rinsed and sun-dried under parabolic covers.

This coffee is another exceptional new small-lot offer, and we hope to see more of Ferney's harvests in the future! Look for syrupy flavors of black cherry and red currant before a refreshing finish, reminiscent of lemon lime soda.
