ABOUT DAMIAN BOLAÑOS

San Agustín has long been a region that has captivated us, and one that we've had a relatively difficult time exploring; mainly due to political issues within the coffee industry. Damian was introduced to our exporting partners by a mutual friend, and this is the first time this micro lot has been separated out. We are very excited to start exploring this unbelievably beautiful region that consistently produces some of the better coffees we taste from Colombia each year.

ABOUT THIS FIELD BLEND

This is a field blend of two of the most commonly grown varieties in Colombia: Variety Colombia, and Caturra.V. Colombia is a Catimor hybrid, which give them high disease resistance. Caturra, on the other hand, is a natural mutation of Bourbon, and is very susceptible to disease.

The cost of getting a coffee from cherry to beverage varies enormously depending on its place of origin and the location of its consumption. The inclusion of price transparency is a starting point to inform broader conversation around the true costs of production and the sustainability of specialty coffee as a whole.
