The municipality of Inzá is located in the corner of the Department of Cauca, bordering with Tolima and Huila and looking out to the west over the Pacific Ocean. Situated on the “Macizo Colombiano” (the Colombian Plateau), which surrounds the high peaks of Tolima and Huila, the region is an important source of water and wildlife, in addition to being prime coffee growing land. 

This microlot, Las Brisas, is produced and processed by Carlos Alberto Ulchur, a smallholder farmer. Produced at 1,900 metres above sea level, this very special lot is  selected as being of exceptional quality. The coffee is fully washed with 24 hours fermentation, and dried on parabolic beds resulting in an aromatic cup with notes of forest fruits of berries and currants. 

Mercanta, our speciality coffee importers, found out about this coffee through their good friends at the Santa Barbara Estate, who serve it in their flagship specialty café, Pergamino, in Medellin. Today, Pergamino works with more than 600 smallholder farmers in four Departments (Cauca, Antioquia, Huila and Nariño), and their influence continues to grow. They have developed the relationship with the communities over time, providing invaluable feedback on quality and training in quality assessment. They are committed to transparency in their partnerships with these farmers, ensuring that profit margins are clear and that value added by quality goes directly to the producer. The premiums that Pergamino pays (and that Mercanta pays) range from 30-300% over market prices (depending on cupping score and volume). They also provide technical assistance so that farmers can continue to improve crop quality.
