We met Segundo and his family on a sourcing trip to Colombia a couple years ago and were impressed by his efforts to improve coffee quality on his relatively young farm - both in terms of his ambition and the care he's putting into those plans. There's a lot to live up to as a grower in one of Colombia's most storied coffee regions, but Segundo happens to be part of a group of ambitious young farmers you may remember from our recent La Plata offering, or last year’s CRECERT Group coffee. They support one another in pursuing quality-minded practices and are producing some consistently tasty lots.

We're thrilled to buy Segundo's coffee again this year because it gives us a chance to get great coffee from a lovely person and to practice our commitments to building relationships and purchasing with long-term sustainability in mind. Regarding Segundo, that looks like:

  1. Buying his entire 85+ 2019 harvest;
  2. Committing to him first next year; and
  3. Releasing an eponymous single origin offering.

Coffee from Segundo's farm will supply the base of Arboretum for the next few months, and appear as this super limited release single origin. Like other Yellow Bourbon selections, this coffee is rich and sweet, with a pleasant citric acidity that keeps the cup balanced.
