This coffee is only available in wholebeans as a filter roast.
Diego Samuel, now 34 years old, was born in Bolivar, Cauca, and has dedicated the last 13 years of his life to growing coffee and gaining a deep understanding in the processing and production of high-end specialty coffee that is almost unparalleled in the unique flavour and profiles produced. Diego works on his farm in Cauca with his wife, two daughters and two brothers. Together they continually learn and striving to achieve the next level with their processing. They built their own lab on the farm to understand the cupping and roasting process, so they are able to begin to curate their own fermentation protocols that they can experiment with. These experiments and novel approach to coffee have allowed him to soar and exceed, winning several awards from 2015 onwards. Diego has also achieved the CQI level 2 processing course qualification, which has allowed him to get a base for seeing how cup profiles could be guided depending on microorganisms, ph and temperature. With his partner Wilton Renso Benitez he is part of Indestec who are at the vanguard of coffee processing.
The Villa Esperanza - Paraiso Farm in El Tambo, Cauca, sits at 1700 metres above sea level and covers 27 ha of land and is planted with Castillo, Colombia, Caturra and Geisha. The farm focuses on technology and the critical processes in producing coffee of this mark. From the selection to the meticulous drying, which is done in a way to mitigate the changeable climatic conditions allowing them to replicate coffees of such high standards. All these lots selected come from the Castillo variety, which again disproves myths that still question the quality this varietal can produce when the treatment of the raw product is taken into such depth to draw out its light and true potential.
