Juliana's path into coffee growing was more unconventional than most. Her first taste of the industry was as a cafe barista in the city - a time in which she saw how elitist and discriminatory the sector can be at its worst. Safe to say she wasn't particularly drawn to a life in coffee.
That all changed when she met her husband, Wbeimar Lasso - a coffee grower as his parents were before him. Wbeimar's passion passed over to Juliana. In 2016, they founded an organisation to support local coffee farmers - Terra Coffee.
After two years of significant success with Terra, the couple secured their own farm - La Terraza. Sprawling out over 14 hectares, Wbeimar and Juliana have discovered some traces of ancient settlers that they have worked hard to preserve. They prioritise conservation - their farming practices don't alter the natural balance of the soil, don't contaminate water sources, and don't impact native wildlife.
In the cup this coffee has the vibrant citric acidity that Huila's coffee is prized for. And it has a sweet, complex herbal undertone - an intriguing flavour profile not to be missed.
Coffees are whole bean as standard. If you'd like your coffee ground please specify for which brewing style in the notes at checkout and we'll grind fresh.
