Luz Marina: Finca La Quinta. Colombia MicrolotBorealis Coffee Company
This is a coffee with a story. This farm-direct coffee from Antioquia, Colombia is a meticulous produced coffee at the farm level. With so much emphasis on quantity over quality in the coffee industry, it is always a treat to find coffee producers and farmers that go to extra lengths to make sure that they yield great coffees that stand out.
We paid a premium for this coffee so that the additional cost can go back to the farmer so she can continue to do great work at origin. At Borealis we are looking forward to working with Luz and her family for years to come.
Nestled in at 2,100 meters above sea level, La Quinta offers the perfect conditions for growing specialty coffee. The owner, Luz Marina, has capitalized on the combination of coffee varietals, fertile soil, elevation, and ideal microclimate to produce outstanding coffee. While this sounds like the perfect equation, her success is a testament to her resilience. After her husband passed away over 20 years ago, she raised their three daughters while also running the farm. As her daughters grew up, they became involved in the daily chores and now the they are an integral part of operations at La Quinta. This family and farm are proof that hard work and attention to detail pay off.
We are very excited to offer this coffee and see great potential for the future at La Quinta.
