Colombia is a coffee powerhouse and rightly takes up its position behind Brazil and Vietnam as the third largest coffee producer across the globe. Huila, or ‘The department of Huila’ as it is referenced today, is a South Western territory blessed with Volcanic soils and spanned by the Andes mountains, all wonderful contributors to its plantations being used for the production of flavoursome coffee. Processing in these plantations is more often in the traditional method of mechanised hulling equipment so spare a thought for the farmers and workhands operating this equipment as they are mostly hand cranked to depulp the coffee bean from its cherry. The coffee is then dried on raised beds on a sun drenched patio which facilitates enhanced air circulation that dries the beans both consistently and evenly. In some coffee producing countries a small farm is viewed upon with risk of being engulfed by larger more efficient and cost effective cooperatives, however most Colombia farmers view this as being their unique selling point as they are able to oversee every processing step themselves. This means they can instantly provide correction and guidance before a crop has been irreversible damaged during crop processing. For roasters, this means continuity and consistency every time.
