Single Origin - Colombia Villa Catia
Colombia Villia Catia
About the bean:
This is our first coffee from Yellow Rooster coffee who have recently started bringing coffee into NZ from their various partners at origins in Central and South America.
This coffee was grown by Erney Vallada on his farm Villa Catia and is comprised entirely of the Castillo variety. Castillo is a variety widely planted in Colombia for it's resistance to coffee leaf rust, a disease which ravaged crops in Central and South America in an epidemic in 2012.
Erney is a member of a regional development initiative which launched in 2018 aimed at improving agribusiness practices and connecting developed quality farmers with export markets which realise the value of their coffee.
