This delicious coffee was produced by Léonardo Henao on his ten-hectare farm, Los Palomos. Léo is the Director of Coffee at Pergamino, our Colombian coffee-exporting partner, who we’ve been working with since 2016. Léo is one of the most curious, passionate and knowledgeable coffee professionals we know, so we were thrilled when we learnt that, through his work with Pergamino, he was inspired to produce coffee of his own in the beautiful Urrao area.
Léo works closely with his farm administrator and long-time friend Jorge Cuella and together they’ve focused on experimenting with new varieties and processing methods. This micro-lot is made up of chiroso bourbon variety beans – a new variety, native to Urrao, that has become recognised internationally for its exceptional quality. This coffee underwent an extended fermentation period during processing, which contributed a vibrant, winey acidity to the cup.
