From the importer:
Cafe Laboyano is a coffee comprised primarily of lots from small-producers in and around the South of Huila. This communal lot is carefully constructed, cupping every single small lot individually at various times before being included within the main lot. In addition to cup quality, each coffee must meet strict physical requirements, including moisture content and water activity.
The first time a lot is cupped is when the producer brings the sample to the buying station. Upon approval, the producer will then bring the lot to the warehouse where it will be cupped again, taking a sample from each sack to ensure consistency. Upon final approval, the parchment coffee is packed in grain-pro bags and remains untouched until the entire lot is milled.
Cafe Laboyano represents the hard work of dedicated producers who are fairly compensated as we pay the highest prices in town for 85+ coffees. The producers who contributed to this lot grow Caturra, Colombia, Castillo, Pink Bourbon and Ethiopian Heirlooms, with farms sitting at a range of elevations between 1,600 and 2,000 meters.
This coffee was constructed in partnership with our friends The Bean Project, whom we expect to do exciting things with in the future!
