This micro-lot was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 40 hours before pulped, later gently washed and dried on raised beds to ideal moisture content.

This microlot is 100% Caturron. This varietal is a rare mutation of Caturra found for the first time in Acevedo, Huila. Growers started planting Caturron due to its resistance to leaf rust and high yield. But only until 2016 Cofinet with the help of some growers from the region identified the exotic cup profile of this varietal.

This micro-lot was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 40 hours before pulped, later gently washed and dried on raised beds to ideal moisture content.

This microlot is 100% Caturron. This varietal is a rare mutation of Caturra found for the first time in Acevedo, Huila. Growers started planting Caturron due to its resistance to leaf rust and high yield. But only until 2016 Cofinet with the help of some growers from the region identified the exotic cup profile of this varietal.

Luis Anibal is a second-generation coffee grower born in Acevedo, Huila. When he turned 15, his father gifted him a small portion of land from which he was able to start saving some profits. At age 30, Luis got married and had 3 sons. When he turned 40, he owned a 20-hectare farm – Villa Betulia -. Luis Anibal asked a local bank for a large loan to enable him to purchase his second farm. Unfortunately, the C-price began to drop for the next two years and Anibal wasn’t making any profit, so he had to sell the farm he had dreamed about to pay back 40% of the loan. In 2011 Luis Anibal was at risk of losing his remaining farm to the bank and needed to improve his financial situation. Which lead him to his town’s specialty coffee association. They paid 15% above the C-market price, which was not enough to reward the effort needed to produce specialty coffee. In 2012 Luis Anibal planted 5000 Gesha trees.

Farmer

Luis Anibal was one of the first farmers in Huila to produce high- end micro-lots as well as master alternative processing methods such as extended fermentation, honey, and natural.

Now, on his farm, you’ll find all sorts of exotic varietals including Gesha, Tabi, Red Bourbon, Java, Sidra, Caturra, Typica, Maragogype, Pacamara, Pink Bourbon, Papayo, Mokka between others. In harvest, he provides jobs to people around, having an economic impact on the community.

In 2019, Luis Anibal, under the guidance of Cofinet began planting native trees amongst his coffee trees to reduce the need for fertilizers, preserve his soil and improve his cup quality. In addition to the 2000 Yellow Bourbons, 9000 Pink Bourbons, 2000 Geshas, and 1000 Tabis were also planted.
