Colombia, Victor Barrera
TASTES LIKE Blackberry, Panela, VanilaPROFILE Fruity & complex
Victor exclusively grows Tabi, a leaf rust resistant varietal, on his 3.5 hectare farm. The workforce of pickers in his municipality are grateful- they say the variety is much easier to pick, due to the space between branches & cherry nodes, making all the difference when handpicking up to 160 kg per day. Victor explores innovative techniques & training to the pickers to continually improve quality.
In Huila, Colombia the estimated cost of production is $1.5 US/lb (4.37 AU/kg). At purchase we determined a sustainable, profitable price for the growing longevity of the producer. Below, we’ve listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price that we paid to Azahar, and within that, the Farmgate price - what Victor directly earned for his coffee as parchment. On top of FOB, we then pay to ship the coffee to Melbourne, quality assess, roast (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retail it, adding significant costs & risk.
