Growing up at Chupadero, Alfredo inherited his father’s passion for coffee. When the time came to purchase his own land, he chose to stay in the area known for its unique, fertile soil. However, his 18 years at La Paloma are not something to be taken for granted. In 2000, illegal groups came to the area. They killed several people including one of his brothers and one of his cousins. After enduring these hardships, Alfredo now sees hope in the Colombian government’s peace treaty with the guerilla. Stability in the region will allow him to safely continue growing coffee.

We are particularly proud of the relationships developed around this coffee. For the third year in a row, the same roaster has purchased this lot. We love being able to bring people together over a cup of coffee. Alfredo works hard to continually provide a great product and the customers know who they are supporting and where their coffee is from.

 

The Cup:

Grapefruit, apple aroma. Molasses, honey, chamomile flavor. Soft, oregano finish. Apple acidity. Delicate body. Good balance.
