Why we love it: The Colombia Finca Palmichal is silky and sweet, with pronounced chocolate and citrus notes. An all-around enjoyable and balanced cup that exhibits just why Colombian coffee is so great.
Farm story: Finca Palmichal is high on the western side of the Central Andes mountain range, near the municipality of Genova, in the department of Quindío. This region went through violent and difficult times during the peak of the guerrilla expansion in the country. But now, after the negotiation between the government and the FARC, there is hope for continuing peace. Producer Atilano Giraldo is the third generation of his family to grow coffee in Quindío, and he grew up working in coffee alongside his father. Gradually, he acquired additional properties, including Finca Palmichal, which is 53 hectares in size and has approximately 350,000 coffee trees.
