The town of San Gregorio lies in the southwest of Colombia’s Antioquia department – one of the country’s most well-known coffee growing regions. Located in the Municipality of Ciudad Bolivár, San Gregorio is smaller than the municipal capital but like it lies nestled in the verdant green hills that characterise the area. The producers who have contributed to this lot hail from the region and own farms that lie in the hills surrounding the town. As should be apparent in the cup, they make the most of their natural surroundings through stringent cultivation and processing practices: they are all committed to making San Gregorio coffee the best that Colombia has to offer.
Marina de Jesus Guerra Agudelo, Jorge Luis Calderon Gil, Prospero Agudelo, Fabio Alonso Guerra & Gonzaga Herrera all come from coffee farming families and are all highly committed to producing better coffee. Their farms are small (most are around 3 hectares, though Jorge Luis’ is larger at 30 hectares), but their love of coffee is huge.
They have been working with the Cooperativa de Caficultores de Andes (Cooperandes), a regional cooperative, in order to improve their cultivation and processing practices as they realise that quality coffee is the key to quality of life for their families.
including ‘coffee.
Each lot is cupped by the expert Cooperandes quality control team, who then determine if the coffee qualifies as a ‘microlot’ to be sold on the specialty market. In this case, the five producers who have contributed to San Gregorio had submitted relatively small lots that were all similar in cup profile and were notable for their high quality. These have been married together to form this ‘San Gregorio’ lot.
