Thanks to the efforts of farmers like Frank, this area has been transformed from one of illicit trade and violence, into a resilient community dedicated to growing specialty coffee. This farm is a Torres family inheritance known for exceptional coffee production for over 40 years. Frank has inherited a part of this farm and is in charge of overseeing all processing and farming practices. He is a Q grader who has been passionate about coffee ever since he was young. He started his coffee career by working for Starbucks’ specialty coffee program, as well as a green coffee buyer for exporters and importers. This network of experience has helped him push the boundaries of processing, making his farm one of the most unique, and innovative in Colombia. His continuous efforts to improve farming practices has helped him turn 90% of his farm organic as way to preserve soil conditions and protect his crops from plague and devastation.

This particular coffee has been processed as a honey, which means that it is dried on patios with some mucilage still left on the beans. During the first 36 hours of drying, Frank dries the coffee in a cooler atmosphere, where the coffee undergoes slow fermentation, provoking lactic metabolism which you can taste in the final cup in its silky texture. We absolutely love this coffee, and are very proud to be able to offer it on our menu this year!
