Colombia Mario Estrada Tierra Santa Jerico
CUPPING NOTES: Coconut, watermelon, papaya, delicate body and balanced acidity
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.
