Maria Lunid is a young second-generation coffee producer remarkably dedicated to quality. This is her first year placing in the regional competition, which we have now been participating in for five years. Maria’s coffee was excellent, and we’re very glad to see her efforts rewarded with second place. We look forward to seeing her progress in the future, and are honored to have the opportunity to work with her coffee.
Variety Colombia (V. Colombia) is the result of successful hybridization of Caturra with the Timor Hybrid. Developed over five generations by Cenicafé between 1968 and 1982, V. Colombia is high-yielding, and has excellent resistance to disease. This combination of traits makes V. Colombia a very popular variety in Colombia.
