Julian Carpio owns the 3-hectare farm called El Paraiso, where he grows 12,000 Castillo variety trees. The coffee is grown at 1650 meters under shade trees, harvested, pulped, fermented for 22 hours, washed and then dried for 15 days under the sun.

We met Julian and his wife at the Colombia Best Cup 2018, where this lot placed in the Top 30. During the live auction, I couldn’t help but notice the proud look on Julian’s face and the loving glances from his adoring wife. It was quite moving and made us want to purchase this coffee even more. Julian’s coffee was by far one of our favorites on the cupping table with its juicy fruit acidity, smooth mouthfeel and dense layers of caramel and stone fruit sweetness.
