Wilson has been producing coffee at his family’s farm Finca La Orquidea for more than 30 years, but has only recently focused on producing specialty coffee. At just 3 hectares the farm is small. Avocado and Guava trees provide natural shade for the coffee, and the varieties that grow here are Caturra and a local variety known as Colombia F6. Dan & Zarah were blown away when they first tasted this coffee in October last year and even more excited when they found out these cherries came exclusively from the Colombia F6 trees.
Created through five generations of breeding and crossing, this coffee is the 6th iteration (F6) of the Colombia hybrid, and something they've not come across before! Whether nature, nurture or a combination of the two has resulted in its exceptional quality we do not know. Either way, this coffee is certainly special and up there with some of the best we’ve tasted from this origin.
