Background Details

Colombia Trujillo Buenos Aires Fully Washed Geisha Peaberry Crown Jewel is sourced from a family owned estate located in the Valle del Cauca department, Colombia. The Granja, consisting of six distinct farms (Cerro Azul, Las Margaritas, La Esperanza, Potosi, Buenos Aires, and Hawaii), is managed by Rigoberto and Luis, two of eleven siblings following in the footsteps of their grandparents who began cultivating coffee in the Valle del Cauca in the 1930s. Rigoberto and Luis meticulously manage the various micro-climates throughout the six farms to ensure optimum adaptability for the Geisha variety and exceptional cherry maturation at Buenos Aires. The brothers have also embarrassed innovation at their wet and dry mill to reduce water and fossil fuel consumption. Beyond coffee, the brothers focus on creating gender balance in the workforce, dignified wages, and educational opportunities for workers and their children.
