The Q graders in our cupping lab scored this coffee 85.



Located in the western part of the country, the area is surrounded by biological reserves and mountain ranges. Well-defined seasons contribute to the quality of specialty coffees from Pacavita. The rainy season results in beautiful cherries, and the clear dry season during harvest allows producers to sun dry coffee once its washed. The high-altitude weather, rich clay soil, and warm sun ensure that the integrity and quality of the beans is preserved from start to finish.

Two primary producers contributed to this lot, Silvestre Vasquez and Joel Lopez. Silvestre is always pushing for a better quality and has expanded his farm into higher altitudes of a mountain called Pico Congolon which is surrounded by the Reserva Biologica de Opalaca and Reserva Biologica Volcan Pacavita.
