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

Carrying an 80 year old family legacy in distributing the finest Colombian coffee to local exporters, their specialty coffee export business expands worldwide in 2015. As growers, they specialize in alternative fermentation processes that are new to Colombia. On their farm and and Processing Centre La Pradera, the most exotic varieties are processed achieving unique profiles that are unknown for Colombian coffees. This coffee bears a multi layer flavor suitable for filter/pour-over and espresso.

 

Info

This coffee is produced by smallholders who are members of OCCICAGE Cooperative in the San Vicente region of Huila. In 2015, OCCICAFE shifted it focus  in improving the quality of coffee production. Producers now deliver samples of their coffee which are assessed and classified into a distinct grade based on cup score: commerical, regional, regional plus or micro-lot. Coffee that meets the base of regional plus standard needs to cup above 85 points and must have a moisture contact of between 10-11%. Since 2018, a selection of OCCICAFE producers have started processing honey with assistance, innovating yet new methods to create breakthroughs.
