In the recent years I have started to purchase coffee from Colombia. Since 2010/11 Colombia has started to focus on a higher demand coffee qualities – and some of the framers and cooperatives are actually doing a quite good job. Normally, I never purchase coffee from cooperatives, but then again – I always let the cup profile speak foe itself. The traditional coffees from Colombia has a lot of Hazelnut and dark milk chocolate.
However, this coffee is outstanding with its smooth velvety aftertaste which I think is the major change with Colombian coffees compared to the old style coffee production.
Alvaro Urbanos farm Tres Potrillos is located in the Vereda San Francisco close to Pitalito in Southern Huila.
The coffees are from areas such as Acevedo, Pital, Bruselas, Palestina, Isnos and San Augustin. San Augustin and Pitalito is the main cities located in the south of Huila. The area has a lot of potential as the soil is perfect for coffee production.
This coffee comes from a small farmer that are a member of Cadefihuila Cooperative. Cadefihuila is a Cooperative working in the north, south and western Huila. They were founded in 1963, and have thousands of producers with between 1-3 hectares of coffee.
