“Sweet, soft and clean with big tart acidity and
a heavy mouthfeel; very lemony with green
grape, floral and dried fruit flavors.”


This Colombian offering comes from contributions of multiple smallholder farmers that reside in the areas
surrounding the town of San Agustín, Huila. In this specific region of Colombia, the average farm size is
about 2.5 hectares. This equates to about 12,000 trees per farmer; and, if all goes well with harvest and
processing, an average of 0.7 kilograms of exportable green coffee per tree, per year. After accounting for
defects and all lower-quality beans, the average farmer in San Agustín is producing about 15–25 bags of
exportable coffee per hectare, per year. As for which bags pass the quality control inspections and are
accepted into microlot offerings—this number is rather small.
This offering is just that: the top tier of quality from multiple smallholding producers. It has been cupped,
vetted, and blended together to produce a regional offering that allows more farmers to receive more
payment for better-quality coffee.
