In December 2022 our importing partners, Osito, hosted Copa de Oro, a multi-regional competition featuring coffees and producers from Western, Southern and Central Huila. Green coffee buyers and judges from six different countries were invited to judge the competition with the Osito Colombian team and rank coffees through three rounds of coffees. Our green coffee buyer, Daniel, was a part of the international panel and was fortunate enough to be able to snag a limited quantity of the winning coffee from the Copa De Oro champion, Diego Hoyos. 

In 2022, Small Planes coffee green buying focused deeper in San Augustin specifically. Coffees we have sourced out of San Augustín (lots from Segundo Galindez and La Muralla) are coffees produced by a younger generation of producers which San Augustín has shown to be a hub for. When the opportunity came to be able to purchase Diego’s coffee from the competition, it was not only an effort to share the winning lot with customers in DC, but also to continue to buy-in to the effort, quality, and potential of young producers coming out of this area.

This coffee is an excellent representation of the Pink Bourbon variety, with its classical bubblegum and floral aroma. On the palette, we taste lush florals that remind us of rose and white flowers complemented by vibrant fruits like passionfruit, guava and cherry. Coming together like a crisp cherry cordial, this is a coffee that will be perfect for the spring season here in DC.
