Background:


This is the crop that is graded just below the Supremo (stocks of the Supremo are low with another shipment due in Australia next month). It cups similarly.


Popayan’s farmers have made the switch of primarily working with crops that yield large quantities to solely dealing with micro-lots that require more care and dedication. This change has allowed the farmers to focus on nurturing the coffee and emphasize quality versus quantity.
The coffee is produced under shade grown canopy and fully sun dried.


Colombia  has  a  diverse  group  of  growing  regions  spread  from  North  to  South  along  the  three  "cordilleras,"  the mountain ranges that are the Northern  extensions of the  Andes.  Most of the Colombian coffee; especially from the Southern growing areas of Popayan comes from small family farms.
Popayan has a rich coffee producing history but only recently became one of the most sought after coffee growing regions in the world.
