producer iconAbout The Producer

With over 15 years of experience now, Jacinto Lozada is a member of “Productores del Futuro”, with high hopes of turning his farm into his own agro-business. Finca El Paraiso is located in Pitalito, Huila, Colombia. The farm consists of 2 hectares of land sitting at an elevation of 1,780 m.a.s.l, and around 3,000 coffee trees in production of the Pink Bourbon and Caturra varieties.

process iconProcessing

Jacinto processes his coffee by harvesting the ripest cherries and leaving them to dry ferment overnight in open tanks. Cherries are then de-pulped and placed in sealed barrels for 40 hours, after which the parchment is washed and dried on raised beds for up to 18 days, depending on the weather.

variety iconVariety

Caturra is a natural mutation of the Bourbon variety. It was discovered on a plantation in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil sometime between 1915 and 1918. For decades, it was one of the most economically important coffees in Central America, to the extent that it was often used (and sometimes still is) as a “benchmark” against which new cultivars are tested. In Colombia, Caturra was thought to represent nearly half of the country’s production until a government-sponsored program beginning in 2008 incentivized renovation of over three billion coffee trees with the leaf-rust-resistant Castillo variety (which has Caturra parentage). Pink Bourbon is a variety primarily grown in Huila, Colombia and while newer, it has quickly grown in popularity for its bright, sweet and aromatic profiles. It is now known to be an Ethiopian Landrace but further information is not available at this time.
