About Colombia La Cartagena
Arrived June in grainpro, this new crop Colombia is a treat to the senses. Lots of intriguing notes can be tasted, but a refined honey sweetness really dominates this cup. We have been looking forward to the arrival of this coffee since we cupped it.
Jorge learned the art of producing coffee from his father. However, after inheriting his father’s small coffee farm, he chose to sell it. With the money from that sale he was able to purchase La Cartagena, a farm that has allowed him to pursue the production of specialty coffee. He now has 4,500 coffee trees planted – a combination of Caturra and Colombia varietals. As he continually works to enhance the quality of his coffee, Jorge already has plans to improve both his water supply and his wet beneficio. Proud of his profession, Jorge is also teaching his children how to grow coffee. He hopes the family tradition will continue for many generations to come.
