Efrain Barrera is the farmer who prodcued this microlot. It came to us through the La Palma y El Tucán processing mill in Colombia. La Palma works with its neighboring farmers to identify excellent coffees, process them exquisitely, and deliver higher pay to them, traceably and transparently. They pay 60% above the FNC price, subsidize 35% the cost of hiring pickers, and provide free agronomic training as well organic compost and coffee seedlings. We first began buying coffee from La Palma in 2014 and have since spent time at their mill in Colombia seeing their work first hand. While we were there, we tasted several microlots selecting this exquisite offering from Efrain. We drove out to Efrain's house and he toured us through his farm explaining the difficulties of growing coffee in Colombia in 2017. He (and we) are thankful for the work La Palma is doing to make coffee growing more rewarding for folks like Efrain.

This is a fruity coffee opening up with wonderful florals and red fruits (think raspberry). It has a sparkling acidity like grape juice frizzante and a creamy body that finishes somewhere between plum juice and clementines.

(Below, Sebastian from La Palma y El Tucan gives some background to La Palma's mission and vision.)
