Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This coffee type hails from Finca Potosi. The farm is located in Caicedonia, in the western half of Colombia. The region, Valle de Cauca, is also known as the Pacific Door of Colombia. Several years ago the region was shadowed by guerrilla wars; but presently, it’s flourishing with high-quality coffee-producing farms.

Finca Potosi is owned and operated by the Herrera family. The Herreras have been producing coffee for the past 40 years. Their hard work, dedication, and tradition contribute to this coffee’s unique profile. Our Valle de Cauca Supremo boasts a soft, winey acidity, and rich chocolate notes.
