It’s been a little while since we last had a washed coffee from Juan, we’re really pleased to be able to share this with you and to be able to have it as our house espresso for the next few weeks. We first met Juan in 2018 at LCF and our relationship with him has become a wonderful partnership since then, the volume of coffee that we buy from him only increasing with each year.

La Claudina is a short drive from the city of Bolivar in Antioquia. The farm house is at the bottom of the valley and the farm's steep slopes are planted with Caturra, Castillo, Tabi, Variedad Colombia and even Geisha. During the height of the season Juan will employ 45 pickers and out of season the farm employees 3 permanent staff. What drew us to working with Juan is his hands on approach, he lives by the farm, works the land, processes the coffee and experiments. Juan’s two farms are quite large so we can grow with him and his coffees in the future as part of a more direct model.

The mitaca or fly crop is the second smaller harvest which usually takes place during spring and summer. We are delighted to say we have also just recently cupped lots from the main harvest too. We will only have this small lot for a matter of weeks.
