ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Don Enrique Puentes has been farming coffee in the village of El Diviso near the town Pitalito, Huila for more than 50 years on his five hectare farm. Over the years he has continued to improve his farming methods and now grows three varieties of arabica (Castillo, Colombia and Tabi) that enjoy the soil and climate of this region. Coffee grown on his farm is harvested, washed and fermented for 18 hours then sun dried to produce an excellent cup that reflects the finest flavor profile from the region.
The Huila department has largest volume of coffee production in Colombia with 154,980 hectares of land dedicated to the crop. Huila has held first place in coffee volume in Colombia since 2008 and has surpassed the production of traditional coffee regions such as Antioquia and the Central Valley.
