Finca La Peña is the third coffee to arrive from the competition we held in Nariño, Colombia this year. We hold annual competitions in Huila and Nariño and we are delighted with the new coffees arriving from our latest event in Nariño. During the competition we invite farmers to submit samples and we then spend four weeks hulling, sample roasting and tasting all of the coffees, culminating with a presentation and award ceremony. The premium paid to all the winners helps to pay off mortgages, build new houses and invest in farm maintenance and equipment. Finca La Peña is owned by Angel Estrada Pismag and managed by his son Carlos. The farm has four hectares, all with coffee and plantain for shade. They grow three cultivars: Caturra, Colombia and, unusually for the area, Maragogype.
