Day 11 - Colombia | Luis Anibal Calderon
Margaret River Roasting Co
This coffee was grown by Luis Anibal Calderon at the farm Villa Betulia. This coffee was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours before being placed inside Grainpro bags for 50 hours at a temperature below 22oC. Then the whole cherries were placed on raised beds until 11% moisture content was achieved.
Luis Anibal is a second-generation coffee grower born in Acevedo, Huila. Luis Anibal started working in the coffee fields at the age of 12. When he turned 15, his father gifted him a small portion of land from which Luis Anibal was able to start saving some profits. Reflecting on his coffee history Anibal said “Back then everything was easier, I worked hard for six years and was able to purchase my first coffee farm.”
In 2011 Luis Anibal was at risk of losing his remaining farm to the bank and needed to improve his financial situation. Which lead him to his town’s Specialty Coffee Association; Primaveral. They paid 15% above the C-market price, which is not enough to reward the effort to needed to produce specialty coffee. In 2012 Luis Anibal planted 5000 Gesha trees. After waiting an arduous three years for the plants to begin baring fruit, in 2015 his financial situation began to improve. Despite only 5%being planted with Gesha and the rest of his farm was Castillo and Caturra.
