Julian Palomino and his wife Maria Teresa grow their Castillo plants at 2000 meters  elevation - high up on the Colombian Massif that has great significance for water production, biodiversity and ecosystems in the region. Almost 80% of Finca El Progreso, their 5-hectare farm, is dedicated to growing coffee. The rest of the land operates as a sustainable forest reserve. High altitude, small size, and attentive farming all converge in creating a sweet, complex and refreshing cup.

This season the coffee is tasting incredibly sweet and balanced with notes of nougat and macadamia. We have a velvety body and a finish that has notes of cherry and dark chocolate.

We have been working with Julian and Maria Teresa for several years now, and we are always pleased to showcase their unique coffees. The couple has a background in agriculture, which helps them implement farm protocols and ensure the highest cup quality. Selective picking of ripe cherries, an extended 20-hour fermentation, and slow controlled drying are essential to a consistent and flavourful harvest. On El Progreso they live by the proverb “Coffee is a blessing and every effort you invest in it pays off”. We couldn’t agree more.
