We currently offer a natural processed caturra varietal from Finca La ILUSIÓN located in Caldas, Colombia. This coffee carries some tropical notes akin to mango and passion fruit.
The Caldas department is one of the major Colombian coffee-producing departments alongside Risaralda, Quindío, and Tolima who gained traction recently. Contributing to the majority coffee production of Colombia, these regions form what the Colombian people calledTriángulo del Café – the Coffee Triangle.
What comes as a surprise is that around 60% of the Colombian farmers are independent small farmers with farm sizes of not even more than one hectare. Imagine the number of micro-lots and undiscovered treasures scattered all over Colombia!
Ever Heard of a Coffee Theme Park?
With an agricultural GDP contribution of around 10-16%, the Colombians have even built Parque del Café, the Colombian National Coffee Theme Park located in the Montenegro town of Quindío!
As of 2018, the theme park has 28 rides and various coffee related cultural attractions including a coffee museum, coffee show, coffee variety gardens and sections for forest myths and legends.
