An Australian producer that sources real good Colombian, we find their coffee processing obviously is prized because they supply to the cafe of Market Lane and Proud Mary.

As growers, they specialize in alternative fermentation processes that are new to Colombia.

Info- Grown by Leonel Arcos at Fina El Resplandor
This coffee is picked and hand sorted by Leonel and his two sons. Later cherries were placed in water tanks for 45 hours, afterwards pulped and washed left to dry on raised beds for 20 days.
Monica is a 47 years old school teacher and while she works at the school, Jairo and Ivan (his sons) follow her instruction on how to fertilize, control dieases and process coffee at Finca El Esplandor. Monica managed to get her hands on some Gesha seeds in 2019 and expects her 3000 Gesha tree to start producing by 2022.
