Emiliano Trujillo is a smallholder farmer who recently began exporting his best bags of coffee as micro-lots in partnership with Pergamino Coffee Exporters, the exporting branch of our friends and suppliers at Santa Barbara coffee estate in Antioquia. Nelson cupped (tasted) a sample early this Fall and liked it enough to buy the whole micro-lot (10 bags)

His  farm is called La Loma (The Hill) located in southern-Colombian State of Huila. Huila is spanned by the Andes mountains and home to towering Nevado del Huila volcano. The Magdalena River runs through Huila's center.Huila State is the largest producer of coffee in Colombia. Most coffees however get blended for their bean size (Excelso and Supremo), However, Huila is also the home of some world-famus microlots because of its climate and altitude. It regularly produces Cup of Excellence-winning lots. Iin 2013, it received Denomination of Origin status – the same status awarded to Champagne, Feta cheese, and many other foods and beverages with unique, location-specific characteristics.

We like to roast it moderately dark and drink it using a pourover dripper.
