Colombia was not alien to the pandemic and the effects were complex for the social and economic sectors of the country. One such sector was coffee production.

 

2020 was an unparalleled year in terms of internal prices and many coffee producers were very comfortable with the incomes from their crops, but costs were very high. Investments in COVID-19 prevention, lack of labour in farms, together with increased internal transportation costs were key contributors to lower profits. 

 

The resilient spirit of Colombian coffee producers made the difference, they kept innovating and trying new ways to produce good cup profiles and enhance the quality of their beans. Much coffee was used in this continuous trial and error process, sometimes with disappointing results (things to learn), and other times outstanding coffees.

 

At our 2021 Primeurs event, we’re happy to be presenting a wide range of coffees with a focus on DIVERSITY.

 

  • Size of farms (big, medium and small)

  • Social features (groups of women, indigenous communities, local farming cultures)

  • Varietals (Geisha + Pink Bourbon + Castillo + Colombia + Caturra + Tabi + Typica)

  • Processes (Fully-Washed + Semi-Washed + Honey + Natural + Anaerobic Fermentation)

  • Regions (Nariño + Cauca + Tolima + Risaralda + Santander + Antioquia + Huila)

  • Features (traditional + organic + decaf)

 

Ultimately, coffee beans are a tool for communication between producers and consumers, each bean is charged with positive energy and desires. All our coffee producers expect you to like their work of art, they have invested a lot of time and energy to bring you the best of a unique harvest, one of the most difficult in recent times for all of us.
