The Samudio García family are the second generation of coffee growers. The farm is located in Vereda El Tambillo, Sandona-Nariño.
Don Gerardo and his wife Imelda have three daughters who are continuing on the family farm. Their 1 hectare farm has approximately 4,000 plants, which the family harvest all by hand, ensuring only beans which are fully ripe and without visual defects are harvested. Whilst machine harvesting would be quicker, the attention to detail would be lacking and the quality would drop severely.
The coffee plants are shaded by orange, avocado, lemon, guava and banana trees, promoting slower ripening helping to develop the flavours. The coffee is grown on steep slopes, which gives it special characteristics since it is found at different heights within the same farm. Their attention to detail has led to an extremely high quality crops with delicate floral notes, juicy peach, sweet brown sugar, and a white chocolate mouthfeel.
