We don’t think this will ever get boring!
Colombia is simply flooding us with great coffee, and we constantly glowing about it (and Colombia, and coffee).
And we would like to learn more about Colombia this year, but for now let’s learn about this coffee.
The farm is located in the eastern branch of the Andes – the Cordillera Oriental, about two hours from the capital of the Bucaramanga department in the Aratoca (Santander) region – La Pradera Hacienda Cafetera.
The family-owned La Pradera coffee farm was established in 1971 and today as many as four generations of the Daza Bautista family are directly involved in the production, processing and export of specialty coffee. The quality of their coffee, and its value, stems from the family’s commitment to their land and coffee. The farm is located near the Chicamocha Canyon – the second largest canyon in the world – this is significant because the canyon creates a unique, favorable microclimate with warm air currents during the day and cool breezes and rainfall at night.
Today, the family-owned La Pradera farm includes 8 other farms and all the infrastructure to process coffee in the La Pradera cooperative. The quality control laboratory is staffed by a team of certified specialists headed by Luis Alfredo Archila.
