Forward purchased 140kg of Luis Anibal's Natural Caturron
The entire lot of four (4) bags has been booked by Rosso Coffee Roasters in Calgary, Alberta
Caturron is a rare-variety that was discovered in Acevedo. Luis Anibal has chosen to plant Caturron as his primary coffee due to its resistance to leaf rust, high yield and quality flavour characteristics. His farm is called Villa Betulia.
Luis Anibal is a 2nd generation coffee producer who was born in Acevedo, Huila. He started working in the family coffee farm at the age of 12, and at the age of 15, his father gave him a small portion of land to produce as his own. From here he started saving some profits and in 2015 he decided to make a big change to produce specialty coffee and invest in exotic varieties.
This coffee was purchased through Cofinet, a Colombian based producer and exporter who works in many capacities in the coffee industry. They're constantly experimenting on their own farms (Jardines del Eden, Santa Monica) and sharing their discoveries with other producers in Colombia. They've developed Mandarin process and have connected us with David Correal's coffee.
