This coffee was produced by John Alexander Bermudez and his family on their 1.5-hectare farm. John, his wife and oldest daughter do most of the work on the farm, only hiring people from their local community to help them during the busy harvest season. This gives them great oversight and enables them to be meticulous and specialty-focused.
John invests the premiums he makes on his coffee into updating the infrastructure of the farm’s micro-beneficio (small wet mill). This is the priority, rather than planting more trees, as the family is determined to grow the farm at a slow and steady pace, to avoid sacrificing the high quality of their coffee.
This is the second time within a year that Market Lane has had coffee from La Estrella in our line-up. This is because most regions in Colombia have not one but two harvests every year. In the cup, you’ll find this coffee has a lovely silky texture and a long, sweet finish.
