Gregorio and family are among the first members of AGRICAFE's Sol de la Mañana program which provides technical, agronomic and financial support for producers who renovate their farms and adjust practices to achieve higher yields and quality. His farm is stunningly beautiful and is the centrepiece of the small Colonia (colony/village) of Copacabana - about 45 mins from the mill in Caranavi. This is our 4th year buying from the Palli's. In previous years the coffees of Copacabana were pooled. This is the second of two lots from Gregorio this year - a washed 100% caturra. Subtle stone fruit, cream or custard, sugar cookie and some citrus (grapefruit) creeping around.
