This Caturra, Colombia and Tabi lot has been produced by Ignacio Arias and his family, whose 4 hectare farm, Mata de Guadua, lies near the village of San Francisco Alto in Colombia’s Nariño state. At 2,050 metres above sea level Ignacio’s land benefits from the perfect conditions for coffee production that characterize the municipality of La Plata. Ignacio’s farm is so small that two days worth of picking are often ‘married’ into a single lot. The town of La Plata, where most of the farmer members live, lies at only 1,000 metres meaning that in order to reach their farms, one has to travel over an hour into the steep mountains that surround the town centre.
