When we first had the opportunity to cup this coffee from Gustavo Charry, we were just finishing up a wonderful run with another Colombian coffee, although the quality of the coffee captivated our attention, we weren't planning to buy it.
Somehow, someway, this coffee draw our attention like magnets, we cupped the coffee again and it is just too good to pass on. We decided to make the purchase.
This is a microlot production, roughly only 2 bags of 150lbs green produced. When we hear more about how Mr. Gustavo Charry treat his farm, dedication his life into quality coffee production, we knew we made the right purchase.
Mr. Charry and us are on the opposite end of the coffee industry, but we have something in common, dedicating our life, diving into our passion, and improving quality of coffee.
