Owned by Jose Fierro, is one of the very few farms where a majority of the trees are of the highly prized Typica varietal. Unlike many growers who swapped their Typica trees for higher-yielding varietals, Jose has stuck with Typica for its unique taste profile and quality.
Although he does not yet have the capacity to harvest the lots separately, the Typica cherries are mixed with Caturra, and as usual the results from this blend produce an excellent cup. Jose’s unique blend and careful production process has led him to be finalist in several coffee quality contests organized by the FNC.
Colombian coffee a smooth and medium body. Notes of fruit and honey give this coffee a wonderful finish.
