Market Lane Coffee
250g bag of La Despensa, Colombia
This coffee was produced by John David Molina and his wife Beatriz Elena Gomez. John David is part of a generation of young people in regional Colombia who are choosing not to move to a city to find work, but instead to stay on their parents’ coffee farms and continue production. Farmers like John David are embracing the challenges and opportunities of producing high-quality coffee, with the goal of achieving good premiums and guaranteeing a better future for their families.
Finca El Hormiguero is located 2,100 metres above sea level. The farm’s coffee trees are planted on the side of a deep canyon that drops down to the Cauca River. The canyon walls trap warm currents, which circulate to higher grounds, allowing for coffee to be grown at higher elevations than elsewhere in Antioquia state. The area’s cool stable temperatures mean that the coffee cherries ripen slowly, resulting in dense beans and a sweet, complex cup profile.
