In a country of 500,000 coffee producers, it's a little easy to get overwhelmed by the potential tidal wave of coffee, especially now that Colombia is coming back from a devastating outbreak of Coffee Leaf Rust. Yet despite the volume of producers, and the steadily recuperating volume of coffee, we have seen our producing partners of South Huila continue to focus on growing and processing coffee of exceptional quality.
During our most recent Colombia Origin Week, we had the opportunity to showcase the coffees of several of our Colombian Producers. Returning lots from Edilfonso Yara's La Esperanza, Duver Rojas' Las Delicias, Omar Viveros' Miraflores, Hector and Fabio Artunduaga's El Renacer, Remigio Quinayas' El Silencio, and Benedicto Yara's El Guamo, as well as lots from new producers, Luz Dary Rojas and Mercedes Reyes.
Earlier this week, we were able to visit many of these producers at their farms in South Hulia. We even brought coffee back to show them what we're doing with their beans.
In a couple of cases, we were able to make Aeropresses of their coffees for them, so they could actually have a taste!
With the Leaf Rust issue abating, many of producers are working hard to plant more coffee and to maintain the trees that they have. Several are working with a trained agronomist to focus their efforts on maximizing quality while maintaining a sustainable production. The harvest continues, so we can look forward to more microlots from these, and other Colombia producers in the next few months.

Check out the official teaser for Brandon Loper's "A Film About Coffee" which is currently in production. Brandon and his crew recently joined us to visit with our Honduran producing partners, Sebastián Benitez, Santos Alexis Dominguez and Nelson Ramirez. They were able to capture an epic moment of Ritual barista Kevin Bohlin preparing coffee for Sebastián at the top of his farm, La Piñona!
While no release date has been set for the film, the teaser is quite beautiful and includes appearances by Kevin, Ritual owner Eileen Hassi and a cameo by roaster Joel Edwards.
