History of Colombian Coffee:
Coffee was introduced to Colombia in the late 1700s with the first plantings in the country’s north. Commercial production and export officially started in the 1810s but remained limited. Throughout the 19th century, coffee plants spread across the country from farm to farm, but it wasn’t until the 20th century that Colombia established itself as a major coffee-growing nation, boosted by the work of the Federación Nacional de Cafeteros de Colombia (FNC).
Today, Colombia produces exclusively Arabica coffee. The three most common cultivars are Caturra, Typica and Castillo. Most farmers have a mix of these cultivars growing, although there are some who separate production by cultivar. Bourbon, Catimor, Colombia and Tabi cultivars are also grown in Colombia, among others. An outbreak of coffee-leaf rust in the early 2010s resulted in severe setbacks and lower yields, from which Colombia’s production has now begun to recover. This is thanks in part to aggressive treatment and preventative techniques, along with the development and distribution of disease-resistant plants like Castillo.
ABOUT THIS ROASTER
“What is it? We made it up. Why? We wanted to explain why we buy and roast the coffees we do. Certifications are not bad, but in themselves not always the reason we buy coffee. So what makes good coffee? Flavour, sustainability, relationships, trust. Just because a producer doesn't have organic certification doesn't mean they aren’t using the best practices for their farm. A relationship with them says more than a stamp can. We trust our relationships, whether direct or through a coffee merchant, and ask you to trust us to buy and roast “good” coffee”.
