We really enjoy the combination of brightness and drinkability here – many times a coffee that has a little more acidity will turn off people looking for an easy-drinking coffee but this lot is smooth and eminently enjoyable.
Finca Palmichal is high on the western side of the Central Andes mountain range, near the town of Genova. This entire region went through very violent and difficult times during the peak of the guerrilla expansion in the country. Now, however, after the negotiation between the government and the FARC, there is hope among these communities for many safe and happy years to come.
Producer Atilano Giraldo is the third generation of his family to grow coffee in the state of Quindío. He grew up working alongside his father on their farm, and since then has acquired additional properties, including Palmichal, which he bought from the local Osorio family.
Recently, after years of hard work, and in order to help the development of his region, Don Atilano ran and was elected as a senator in the Colombian parliament representing Quindío.
