Libardo Martinez and his wife Nora are first generations coffee producers. Based in Tablón de Gómez, Nariño, they have a modest eight hectares where they grow Castillo, Caturra, and Varidad Colombia varieties. This coffee is grown at a very high altitude of 2050 masl, which usually would not be ideal, but the unique microclimate of this area due to it being close to the equator makes it possible. This specific lot was pulped and fermented in barrels without oxygen before being dried on raised beds. This creates a more complex and fruity flavour profile.
