Antioquia is typically known for large coffee estates serving the commercial grade market, and this is still much the case. However, things might be changing as the younger generation is beginning to take over the production.
David is a young producer in Antioquia, part of an informal group of innovative young farmers who are determined to prove the potential of their region goes beyond chocolate and caramel cups.
His father thinks David’s ideas are too radical and their pair argued about the best way to manage the family farm. To solve the conflict, David’s father decided to lease the property to David to manage as he chooses. David and his brother Daniel took control of the farm in October 2017 and have since made significant changes.
The equipment at the farm is old and worn down, and not very reliable. The pulping and drying for the higher quality lots is therefore done at Juan Saldarriaga’s facility, but Juan David is investing in new equipment and upgrading his beneficio so that he will be able to process all of his coffee at his own facility.
This washed coffee is super clean & transparent, a result of great processing of coffee! You'll get fruity notes of pineapple & mango, finish with a lovely caramelly sweet aftertaste.
