Hernando is a third generation coffee farmer who inherited two farms when her father Hernando Arcila passed away 20 years ago. For many years his focus was on producing high yields but since 2020 he enrolled in our single state program in search of producing high quality coffee in volumes. After one year of hard work Hernando is ready to offer the world a high quality coffee with two harvest per year and the intention of searching for a long term relationship.
La Glorieta – La Glorita is a 35-hectare farm located at 1400 m.a.s.l in Armenia, Quindio. They mainly grow Colombian traditional varieties such as Caturra, Castillo, and Typica. The weather in Armenia is warm, it is characterized by its mountainous geography and different bird species are everywhere. La Glorieta is a traditional farm so the farmer takes care of the soil by using good practices that help to regenerate the soil, such as organic compost, native tree planting, and weeds removal from the base of the coffee trees.
This lot was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 48 hours
inside Grainbro bags followed by a further 24 hours of aerobic
fermentation. Then the coffee was placed back inside Grainpro bags
for another 48 hours. Finally, the coffee was placed on raised beds
below 35oC until ideal moisture content was achieved.
This microlot is 100% Variedad Colombia. This variety was developed
by the Colombian Coffee Federation in order to fight leaf rust and is a
hybridization of Caturra and Timor Hybrid.
