Farmer: Gregorio Gallego
Beans: 100% Arabica
Variety: Castillo, Colombia, Caturra
Taste: Delightful flavors of sweet caramel and passion fruit. Well balanced taste with a slight hint of chocolate.
Gregorio's farm is located on top of a mountain in the central Andes 1,450 meters above sea-level. The farm contains 50% Colombian and 50% Castillo variety. The family house is also used for pulping, fermenting, washing and drying.
Due to the onsite education provided by Colombian Artisan Coffee, Gregorio has improved his scores from 82 to 85. We continue experimenting new methods according to the varieties.
Due to the economic, institutional and security problems that affect the coffee growing industry in Colombia, many local families have been indirectly forcing younger generations out of the region and into the bigger cities in search of better opportunities, but Gregorio was one of his 9 brothers who wanted to be a farmer as his father instead of moving to Medellin.
