Producer Info:
Catalina Vásquez, a fourth-generation coffee producer, helps manage and market harvests from her family's three coffee farms in Antioquia. Through her family's decades of growing experience and her forward-thinking, entrepreneurial eye, Catalina and her family have invested in other farmers throughout the country to create a modern Colombian coffee brand called Cafelumbus.
The Farm:
El Águila is a small micro-lot procured by Cafelumbus in an effort to support as many shareholders as possible. Asotatamá is a small association comprised of 94 families of coffee producers with a common goal to produce high-quality specialty coffee. The association is situated near the edge of Tatama National Park. Each producing member of Asotatamá owns an average of 2 acres.
Our Thoughts:
From Eli: " I bought this coffee on a whim after passing through Charleston, SC on a family cruise vacation.  I had stopped in briefly while on land to say hello to our friends and importing partners at Balzac Bros. and they had a few coffees for me to try.  After being on a cruise for 5 days, just about any specialty coffee tasted like heaven, but something about this washed micro-lot was standing out to me.  It has a crisp grapefruit-like acidity up front which mellows into a sweet banana bread yum-ness.  At first, I thought maybe I bought this coffee too impulsively with an "easy-to-please" palate, but after returning home, getting in the roaster and cupping the result, we all agreed that this was a great buy..."
