The La Inmaculada Coffee Farm is owned by the Holguin Family and is located in a small town called Pichinde, just 20 minutes from the city of Cali, in the beautiful Valle del Cauca of southern Colombia. Traditionally known as a sugar cane growing region, a business that the Holguin family had carried out for many decades in the region of Nariño. In 2010, the Holguin family decided to enter the coffee growing business. They chose to utilize a previously unused land in a family farm which presented ideal conditions for growing coffee, including weather, altitude, rainfall and sunlight. They started with 5.1 hectares of coffee plants and today they have around 30 hectares of planted coffees, many of which are rare and unusual species and varieties, in addition to 20 hectares of natural forests.
The larger farm has been divided into four smaller farms and these are El Jardin, Las Nubes, Monserrat and Inmaculada Concepcion, where the Holguin family planted some of the rarest and most special coffees like Rume Sudan, Eugenoides, Laurina, Gesha, Maragesha and others. These coffees have special and distinctive flavor profiles. The Eugenioides offers a profile devoid of bitterness whatsoever and is amazingly sweet and elegant, unlike any coffee you have ever tasted. Being one of the parent species of the coffea arabica, the Eugenioides allows a true coffee fan to understand the origins of coffee.
This really worked well as a special coffee served with dessert. Wonderfully complex.
I've been fortunate to sample this 'holy grail' level coffee several times before from a few other specialty coffee brands (Onyx most recently), and it's aways been unique, interesting, and flavorful. BUT WOW, there must really be something to roasting while still fresh from harvest cuz this was BY FAR THE MOST IMMACULATE CUP OF COFFEE I'VE EVER DRANK! Apologies for the bad pun, but just wow. The aromas were explosive and the flavor so deep and complex I thought I was drinking a Vega Sicilia. Never have I had that experience before. Just ordered two more bags. Thank you guys.
Thanks a lot Amor Perfecto! You have ruined all other coffee for me! All of your coffee is incredible, but this is something else! I never knew coffee could taste like this! I am obsessed. Thank you for sharing this with the world!
