About Colombian Finca Sofia
Colombia is one of the largest coffee producers in the world and benefits greatly from having one of the most unique and complex set of micro-climates of all coffee producing nations.
A key reason that Colombia is such an exciting origin for us is that it contains so many regions with their own unique micro-climates. The variations in climate are created in large part by Colombia’s mountainous terrain and varying wind patterns. This results in a huge variety and complexity of styles and cup profiles. There is no one single “Colombian” profile.
The La Sofia Supremo is a screen 19 lot, collected from thirty small-scale producers in the veredas of El Tigre, La Selva, Tribunas, Providencia and Patio Bonito. These are all located in the Belén de Umbría region of the Risaralda department in Colombia’s western Andes mountain range. The municipality is located at 1500 meters above sea level, where the average temperature remains at a steady 20°C year-round.
The main harvest is collected in the second semester, from October to November. The mitaca or secondary harvest is collected in the first semester, from March to April. Belén de Umbría ranks amongst the country’s major coffee producing towns, coming in at the tenth position nationally in terms of volume. Farmers in the area typically own a 4 to 6 hectare farm, where they predominantly grow the Castillo variety. The producers wet-process their own cherries. Parchment is dried on patios or in driers, depending on the weather conditions.
