Ripe and playful, we’re tasting a deep, resonant sweetness like roasted pineapple & butterscotch. Syrupy fruit flavours of dates & mandarins linger in the finish.
Please enjoy this stunningly sweet & complex lot from Ferney Macías, grown in the Santa Rosa vereda of El Pital, Huila in Colombia.
Ferney comes from very strong coffee background. His mother, Alicia Macías, runs a 33 hectare farm called Finca El Progreso, which neighbours Ferney’s own farm, La Ceja. It was inherited from his late father, Bernado Macías. His two younger brothers, Oscar and Nelson, help Ferney at his farm as well as at their mothers. La Ceja spans 5.5 hectares, with around 3 planted out with coffee. Ferney also defers praise to his wife and two young daughters, seeing coffee production as truly a family endeavour.
