Coffees of this exemplary quality are very rare.

Each winning coffee has its own flavour signature from the earth where it grows and all have been handcrafted in such a way as to enhance these unique characteristics.
It’s from the southern region of Huila – well known for producing some of the most exciting Colombian coffees. Surrounding the town of San Agustín there are about 50 coffee-farming families that have formed the Asociación Los Naranjos de San Agustín. This is what you’d call a relationship coffee – a great example of our supplier working with farmers in improving their livelihoods through producing quality coffee.
Each family harvests and processes their own cherries and these are sold as microlots during the primary harvest. The farms are centred around the town of San Agustín between farms, the coffee is really well-prepared, which speaks to the association’s reputation for high quality.
Javier Cerón Rubiano was born in the state of Cauca, 44 years ago. When he was 19 and looking for a job, he got to the south of Huila, where for 25 years he has been dedicated to coffee production. There he established his family with his wife Maria de Jesús Imbachí and has 5 children. His coffee farm is 30,500 square meters and all of them are caturra variety. He has counted with fortune of being part of the auction winners in two occasions of the Cup of Excellence Competition. His coffee farm is run by his whole family.
He is an active member of the group “El Caney” and his farm is handled according to the care of the environment and the healthy living with the nature, as for all the good agriculture practices. He has planted some species of trees like Eucalyptus, Arrayanes and Guamos inside the coffee plantations; those are good for shading and to provide nitrogen to the soil. There are also some fruit trees planted.
As an small farmer, the infrastructure for coffee is a basic one, he has a pulping machine and a tank for fermentation, of course taking good care of the activities at the farm such us the cleaning of equipment, and the risk and safekeeping in some steps of the process. For the washing of the coffee process they use good quality water, and then they do a special treatment so they can come back again to the nature. Javier Cerón is also a remarkable farmer that is an exemplary coffee producer.
