About Colombia Bagamenton German Garcia
Arrived August 2021 in grainpro. Only 2 bags are up for grabs.
Bagamenton has been home to the Garcia family for over 40 years. Nestled at over 2,300 meters above sea level. This high elevation in the clouds plays a fundamental role on the quality of the coffee that is produced at the farm.
German and his siblings were raised at the farm, where they learned the production of coffee. German's father, Francisco, used to work at the neighboring coffee farms all year round to provide for his family, meanwhile German�s mother Bertha took care of the kids and the farm. When German�s father passed away in 2006, he was just 8 years old. The Garcia family became more dependent on the farm. They started planting more coffee and nowadays they have about 1,700 trees between Colombia, Caturra, and Typica varietals. At 23 years old German is part of the new generation of Colombian coffee growers and is motivated to improve quality year over year!
