Finca EL Palmichal Colombia
Producer: Finca Palmichal by Atilano Giraldo (third generation coffee farmer)
On the quest for distinguished coffee, you simply can’t pass Colombia. Colombia’s quality reputation stems from hard work and excellent terrain. The department of Quindío is nestled west along the highest Andes sierra, the Cordillera Central. Refreshing yet calm winds descend through green valleys, whilst volcano cones rise impressively. This area, as part of the Eje Cafetero (coffee axis), has become famous for its long tradition in coffee cultivation. In the very south of Quindío lies the municipality of Génova. Atilano Giraldo’s Finca Palmichal is settled within this district at an altitude of on average 1,560 meters. He calls a total of 53 ha of coffee trees his own. The finca curls along lush hills next to yucca and green plantain trees. Having worked alongside his father for years, Atilano is now the third generation to cultivate coffee in this area. Over the years he has perfected the processes and his knowledge about coffee to create an Arabica full of abundant aromas and prosperous body. Luckily, two rain seasons enable Atilano to harvest his coffee twice a year, which means a steady supply of this splendid yet rare coffee for you.
