Add To Cart

District Lot, Cundinamarca Colombia

Cundinamarca has 15 provinces and 116 municipalities mainly situated within the Eastern Cordillera of the Andes. The coffee here is picked by the smallholders and generally washed and dried on the farm, often at high altitudes on steep slopes, or brought to a nearby beneficiary for processing. It will then be collected at the dry mill or cooperative headquarters for cupping, scoring and sorting for export. 

Due to the many microclimates and changing weather patterns, there is often fresh coffee cropping throughout the year, though generally this is split across the main and mitaca (or ‘fly’) crops. Global warming has seen a significant change across Colombia, bringing challenges to some areas and opportunities to others. Earthquakes and landslides have featured in the coffee areas, but the commitment to quality there remains high. 

The 'Swiss Water' decaffeination process (SWD) is 100% chemical free, and removes approximately 99.9% of the coffee beans's caffeine content but preserves much of the beans original character.
