Huila is arguably Colombia’s best-known department for bright and aromatic coffees, light on the palate and articulate in flavor. The 5 hectare farm of La Floresta, belonging to 73 year-old Nohora Sepulveda de Zambrano, is a 45-minute drive from the municipality of Algeciras. Doña Nohora runs the farm with a small team, consisting of Alexander, her longtime farm manager, her two sons Edwin and Rafael, and an annual team of 25 local pickers to execute each of the farm’s two harvests.
Azahar Coffee, the sourcing company and exporter of this coffee, partners with local grower organizations to identify coffees and producers of the highest potential, pull these aside from the usual export stream and market them directly to buyers internationally on a quality-based pricing scale. The average farm-gate price farmers receive from Azahar sales is 25-50% above Colombia’s federal price.
