ABOUT THE COFFEE VARIETIES

The lot is comprised of some of the mostly highly-sought-after coffee varieties including Sudan Rume, Geisha and Tabi. These varieties are all known for their high cupping scores and complex profiles.

Sudan Rume is an ancient landrace variety that was first cultivated in South Sudan’s Boma plateau. It is a genetic parent of many well known varieties, including SL28.

 

Tabi is a newer variety that descends from Typica, Bourbon and Timor. It has

slightly larger fruits and seeds and can be grown at high altitudes, and in high density, with up to 3,000 trees per hectare.

Cafexport cultivates a range of high quality varieties at Fincamigos. They produced their first Tabi, Geisha and Sudan Rume lots in 2020 and their first Laurina lot in 2021.

Fincamigos preserves 4 hectares for forest conservation. They have planted more than 650 native trees and plants. These native species help rejuvenate the ecosystem and create a habitat for the migratory birds that pass through the region each year.

FEATURES OF COLOMBIA COFFEE BEANS

Colombia has been producing and exporting co!ee renowned for their full body, bright acidity and rich aftertaste, since the early 19th century.

Colombia boasts a wide range of climates and geographic conditions that, in turn, produce their own unique flavors in coffee. This also means that harvest times can vary quite a bit. In fact, between all its di!erent regions, Colombia produces fresh crop nearly all year round.

The increasing focus on the specialty industry is changing the way traders and farmers do business. It is becoming more

common for farmers to isolate the highest quality beans in their lots to market separately. These higher-quality lots are often sold under specific brands or stories.

Besides its wide variety of cup profiles, Colombia has quickly expanded its certification options over the past 10 years. The most common certifications available are Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, UTZ and Organic.
