Colombia Luis Carlos Gutierrez

Colombia Luis Carlos Gutierrez

We've just launched a new filter coffee, and we're loving it. 

It boasts a super sweet flavour profile, with zingy citrus notes and a lingering, moreish mouthfeel.

On the western side of Huila, you'll find Gigante: a municipality famous for its coffee. Here, up in the mountains, Luis Carlos Gutierrez and his wife Sandra Milena Pardo grow incredible coffee richly infused with family history.

WHAT MAKES THIS COFFEE UNIQUE

Luis Carlos begins his coffee process with careful picking of the ripe cherries to guarantee good quality, and then the cherries are taken to the wet mill located on the farm. There, the cherries are left to ferment inside bags for a period of 60 hours when the climate is cold and for 40 hours when the weather is warmer. When ready, the cherries are floated to remove the defective ones, which will float due to their lower density. Afterwards, the cherries are taken to the drying area, where they will take about three weeks to dry. When ready, they’re taken to Caravela’s purchasing station in Gigante.

FINCA EL MIRADOR

The farm, El Mirador, was initially purchased by Luis’ grandfather, Dagoberto Gutierrez. It was then passed on to Luis Carlos’ father who, in turn, allocated a parcel of the farm to his children.

Coffee, with its extraordinary aroma, became a conduit for the family and its history; a life full of gratitude for what they’ve been able to achieve, empowered by the farm and its crops. Since the moment Luis Carlos spearheaded the change towards production of high-quality coffee, cherry picking has improved immensely. This suite of improvements has yielded wonderful results, such as Luis Carlos’ coffee reaching Top 20 in the Cup of Excellence Colombia 2022. 

El Mirador (‘The Lookout’ in English) is a special place with an amazing view of Gigante from the farm. It’s within these surroundings that Luis Carlos begins his coffee process by carefully picking ripe cherries in order to guarantee top-tier quality. Cherries are then taken to the wet mill and left to ferment inside bags for between 40-60 hours, climate-dependent. When ready, the cherries are floated to remove any defects, then taken to the drying area for a stay of approximately three weeks’ duration. When ready, it’s off to the purchasing station they go!

PRICING EXPLAINED

 *This is the FOB (Free On Board) price: the price paid to the exporter before shipping, and which does not include shipping costs, weight loss (around 17%), storage and other charges. Ultimately, the FOB price represents the $ figure that stays in the coffee's country of origin, benefiting its producer, community, and beyond. 

^This is the 'raw' price paid directly to the producer, and paid in the local currency for parchment coffee. The coffee is then milled and sorted before being placed in bags, ready for shipping.
