Colombia Finca Puerto Alegre Carbonic Maceration

The Lopez family have been cultivating coffee on their farm, Finca Puerto Alegre, for over 80 years. Beginning with patriarch Don Moises, the Lopez family’s operation has evolved over three generations to this present day with four of Don Moises’ grandchildren managing, shifting focus to producing sustainable, specialty coffees.

Finca Puerto Alegre is divided into parcels that are located in the mountains surrounding the town of Pijao. The main plot sits in the foothills and has a stream passing through. The mill, lab and main house are all located on this plot.

Coffee at Puerto Alegre is shade grown. Although full sun generates higher yields, Don Moises was a strong believer in sustainability (before sustainability was a “thing”) and did not want to damage the environment with pesticides and fertilizers for higher yields.

 Finca Puerto Alegre produces coffee year-round. The Lopez family fertilizes and prunes trees on a regular schedule to keep plants healthy and productive.

Their careful attention to cultivation is complemented by equally-attentive processing. Jairo, the second youngest of Don Moises’ 4 grandchildren, was trained as a civil engineer and has applied his knowledge to improving processing methods at Puerto Alegre.

 Finca Puerto Alegre and the Lopez family have shown that tradition and innovation can combine successfully, and this coffee is a prime example. Complex, fruity and floral, it is delightful in the cup and a real treat.
