Colombia El FaldonCat & Cloud
Located in and among the valleys of the Colombian Andes Mountains are thousands of smallholder farms. The altitude, the low-sloping mountainsides, and the attached cloudbanks create an atmosphere ideal for coffee here in the Huila Department. Signature notes of orange blossom among other light citrus are present in the cup, along with cocoa, a medium body, and a clean, balanced finished.
Our VIP growing this coffee is Arnulfo Leguizamo. Located at 1840 masl in San Agustín, his 7 acre farm, Finca El Faldón, grows mainly Caturra and Castillo varieties. Day pickings, separated microlots, and strictly monitored drying are hallmarks of his small, but detailed operation. His coffee has won multiple awards, including an historic Colombia Cup of Excellence and was the coffee used by Pete Licata to win the USBC in 2013. He is a leader in his community and helps fellow coffee farmers to improve their quality. We are excited to be purchasing his coffee and bringing it to our Cat & Cloud community for the first time!
