Colombia Los Hermanos

$19.00

The Torres brothers bring us this coffee from their two farms just outside of the town of La Pradera in the La Union municipality of Nariño. Finca Casa 2, run by Juan Angel Torres is part of an inheritance that for more than 30 years has been part of a tradition of coffee growing. In Juan’s words:

“In its early years, the farm grew mostly Caturra, which over time has been disappearing because of the roya crisis and has been replaced with the Colombia variety. The farm is around three hectares in size filled with citrus trees like orange, mandarin,  lime, and lemon. Most of the property is flat and enjoys shade from banana, guamo, leucaena, and yarumo trees and is beautified by bamboo plants along the perimeter.

The farm is located 1800 meters above sea level and its climate is variable, with July and August as the hottest months. Fertilization is done twice a year, once with fortified fertilizer and once with organic matter. The most important challenge is to preserve the layer of organic material in the soil, which is accomplished by slashing weeds between the coffee trees.”

 

Frank Rivas Torres speaks of his farm:

“Finca La Indonesia is around two hectares, of which 60% is cultivated on a mountain slope. The farm is part of our family inheritance left to my father Arbey Maria Torres Zamora for our grandfather Marco Antonio Torres, who together have a tradition of more than 70 years in coffee cultivation. In addition to coffee, the farm grows plantains and bananas. La Indonesia has ample patios for drying coffee, which is harvested in May, June, and July, with a small “mitaca” or “traviesa” harvest in December.”
