FARMER DIRECT Colombia Alcides Avenando

We purchased this coffee in partnership with one of our importers Shared Source, which specializes in long term grower relationships. Alcides has been processing stellar coffee for a number of years. Thanks to the high prices Shared Source has been paying him every harvest, he was able this year to complete construction of a new home on his farm for himself and his extended family.

Alcides is a long-time member of a well known Cooperative, Coocentral in Central Huila. He was one of the first producers to enter into the Co-op’s Premium Program, which helps producers to change on-farm processes and improve the quality and sale price of their microlots. The Cooperative realises that differentiated coffees are the only way to keep these small producers on their farms. We are proud to say that Shared Source is Coocentral’s chief Premium client, and this coffee represents what those long term investments are capable of producing.  In the cup, this coffee expresses rich stone fruit, molasses, green apple and fresh coconut. As a brewed coffee it expresses more nougat and citrus, while espresso draws the creamier, richer cocoa nib qualities. The season here is long so enjoy it over time.
