About this coffee

Juan Carlos Correa was born and raised in San Gil municipality and he has been cultivating coffee in the area of Socorro. He started working with coffee 25 years ago and he has been an independent producer for 10 years. He works the land of his father in law, while his wife finishes her agricultural studies with emphasis in coffee production. Coffee is their principal income source, and they hope to be able to provide their kids with quality education, with the money their coffee crops produce. They are optimist and want one of their kids to take over the farm and improve processes and quality of the coffee. When the harvest is over Juan Carlos works with other crops such as corn, peppers and beans.

We are proud to once again offer an amazing Colombian Selection.

  1. Colombia has the ideal geography for coffee production. Their coffee is known for its rich, mild flavor that comes from the perfect climate and elevation. As you may have heard before, coffee grows best in volcanic soil, at 1,200-1,800 meter elevation, in places that are free of frost but receive around 80 inches (200 cm) of rain a year. Colombia ticks all those boxes.
  2. Coffee Bean Growing Region ColombiaColombia basically has a bean to suit every taste. As you can see in the picture, Colombia has wide growing areas that run from north to south, producing different bean flavors. For example, the northern region that includes Norte de Santander, Santander, and ‘Others” is warmer and lower altitude and produces coffee that has lower acidity and a fuller body. Central region including Antioquia, Cundinamarca, and the north of Tolima harvests all year round. Finally, the beans from the southern part of the country (Nariño, Cauca, Huila and the south of Tolima grow at higher altitudes, closer to the equator, giving them a higher acidity and much sought-after sweetness. What’s all this mean? The taste of coffee is subjective, and you will definitely find exceptional coffee that you’ll love.
  3. The whole country is behind coffee production. There are more than 500,000 families that produce coffee in Colombia, and they are in a well-organized trade association that is focused on making sure these families have good working conditions, improved infrastructure, and social security. And because it’s all family-owned business, these coffee growers pour a lot of love into what they do.
