Campesino’s main warehouse is located in Jerico, Antioquia. Jerico is a small and very Catholic town, home to Colombia’s only canonized saint, Madre Laura (Mother Laura).
The town maintains a rich coffee culture, but has limited access to resources. Campesino set-up shop in Jerico in 2016, providing a new option to the farmers to sell their coffee at a much higher price, in addition to forming a personal relationship with us, frequent farm visits, cupping analysis, and micro-loans for infrastructure projects.
This blend is made up of 20+ farms and growing, each lot cupped regularly to find the perfect balanced cup that best represents the town of Jerico and it’s distinct profile. Campesino expect to grow this blend, bringing on new farmers that share the same motivation in producing great coffees.
Sebastian was born in Armenia, Quindio who after living in Bogota for 8 years came back to his home town to manage his father’s farm. As a young and motivated coffee farmer, Sebastian convinced his father to plant rare varietals to help offset the low C market prices. Although a huge risk to replace high producing varietals such as Castillo for low producing varietals, like Gesha, Sebastian was determined to produce an outstanding cup. We think he nailed it with this Honey Pink Bourbon.
