Sourcing Story

49th Parallel Crop To Cup Story

Robert was a picker in Cauca, near the border of La Plata, until he inherited 2 hectares devoted to coffee from his parents, who have 7 hectares in total. Exceedingly passionate about quality, Robert achieved a degree in coffee production from SENA, a community college in Colombia that’s free and accessible. Currently, he is studying cupping and is constantly bringing parchment samples from his plot to evaluate and sample roast.

He reminds us a lot of another farmer we work with, Carlos Guamanga, who is the epitome of focus and passion for specialty coffee. The spirit that Robert exudes for his craft is only matched by the quality in the cup he produces.

Very Good but not great

Very good coffee, will certainly perk you up, found the flavor a tiny bit harsh. Might have to play around with the brewing. There are better Columbian / South American coffees for sale at 49th Parallel. But if you are looking a change from those it's a good one to try. Excellent roasting and shipping as always from 49th Parallel.
