Las Pinas Colombia Espresso
This Caturra microlot was produced by Reinaldo Parra and his family on their 5-hectare farm, Las Piñas (meaning “the pineapples” in Spanish). The farm sits at a staggering 1,900 meters above sea level in the steep, rugged hills of Tolima. The Rio La China runs through the steep valley walls and is used as a water source to irrigate and process the coffee. Reinaldo is an influential coffee producer in the China Alta region, with many of his neighbours looking to him for advice and guidance. His farmland includes two very steep slopes, with his home, micro- beneficio (mill) and drying beds sitting between them. Reinaldo has chosen to plant the Caturra variety, which yields well at the higher elevations of China Alta and also has a sweet and refined cup quality, allowing him to sell his coffee at a premium to specialty buyers.
