Colombia Huila Augustin Micro Lot
In the spotlight, this fantastic coffee from Arnulfo Leguzamo, Finca El Fadon, Huila, San Augustin won first place in the international competition “CUP OF EXCELLENCE” in 2011.
Roasting Plant is pleased and honored to be working with Arnulfo Leguizamo, Finca El Fadon. We think he’s someone who every “cafetero” in Colombia should aspire to be: As a member of Asociación Los Naranjos, he’s a leader in his community and supports his fellow farmers in their efforts to improve their quality.
In 2011, he won the first prize at the Cup of Excellence with coffee from this farm. An unprecedented price per lb. was paid for the Cup of Excellence–winning coffee, reflecting just how good it is.
He continues to work so hard, is humble about his exceptional accomplishments, is one of the best producers, and inspires others—including his son Diego. The latter has started managing Finca El Faldon alongside his father. Diego has trained up as a cupper and is working hard to gain the experience he needs to oversee operations in the future, a multigenerational coffee family.
Recently, Arnulfo has become an innovator and leader in his community by opening a café. He now works firsthand with coffee from bean to cup for his coffee-loving customers.
We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with this exceptional producer and his family.
