Introducing this award-winning coffee. This special coffee was the #2 coffee in the Los Naranjos Competition of 2020. It is a beautiful cup that is exceptionally unique. Gilma Munoz owns the farm Miraflores, where she grows Caturra, Colombia, and Castillo varieties. A member of the Asociacion Los Naranjos, Gilma is part of a tight-knit group of growers surrounding the town of San Agustin, Huila, Colombia. Despite the small size of the farms-2.5 hectares or less on average with fewer than 12,000 coffee trees-the coffees coming from Los Naranjos have consistently been some of the best and brightest out of Colombia each year. The overall philosophy of Los Naranjos growers is that anything that improves the lot for one producer can improve the lots of all. They readily share information to improve the cup quality of all growers. Relying on a combination of modern technology, along with the traditional and sustainable methods of farming that have been passed down for generations, Los Naranjos growers are really pushing the boundaries of taste and cup quality further each year.
