FINCA EL DIVISO
South Huila is one of the most famous coffee-producing regions in Colombia, it is part of the new Colombian coffee belt with many young people involved in its production with a curiosity for processes, improving benefits and new ways to go beyond the traditional fully washed Colombian coffee. The Huila region is located in the south-central part of the country. The region is well known for the quality and size of its coffee beans. It is a quality that has been awarded many times in recent national and international competitions. Despite this success, this is a coffee-growing region that has remained humble and authentic. The vast majority of producers run small farms, mainly covering between 1 and 5 hectares, with yields of between 10 and 15 bags of exportable coffee. The coffee industry recognises the high quality of the coffees produced in this region and has always encouraged fully washed coffee preparations, offering training opportunities to producers to further improve quality and consistency over time. Its soil and climatic conditions are the perfect combos to develop a very complex cup profile, with the main characteristic being acidity with citric notes as in our Limon coffee.
Finca El Diviso was run in the traditional way by the father, Jose Uribe, until a few years ago, when Jose Uribe's sons, Nestor and Adrian, went to study at a training centre in the city. With this learning, they innovated in their way of working with natural practices and new processes such as anaerobic fermentation. They started to produce traditional varieties such as Castillo, Colombia and Caturra in Yellow Bourbon, Red Bourbon, Pink Bourbon, and Geisha. This new lease of life has brought a new perspective on flavours and consistency in cup profiles
We roast our coffee Mondays and Wednesdays! All weekly orders are dispatched twice a week Tuesdays & Thursdays. On all of our coffee bags, we provide you with a roast date. To get the best out of our coffee, we aim to rest it for 7-14 days after roasting (depending on the type of coffee); this allows for the flavors to open up, offering much more clarity to your cup.
