Description: Diego Lopez started his coffee business ten years ago after he bought his farm Finca San Francisco. Diego had an interest for this farm because he wanted to experiment with his knowledge as an agronomist. Yes, Diego Lopez is an agronomist and a coffee grower! At San Francisco, Diego started with the Caturra variety with which he learned to control all kinds of plagues and disease. Diego learned more about coffee and managed to practice his knowledge as an agronomist. The result of this has been the start of honey and natural process fermentation which gives to the cup a unique and flavorful fragrance and taste. 

Cóndor, Diego’s local partner, gives him all the tools and guidelines to achieve this development in honey and natural processed coffees. Don Diego and his wife are developing their plantation with the idea of sustainable development linked to high technicity: tree nursery, diversity of shadow trees (lemon, banana, guamo and guava) and development of drying and fermentation techniques. The secret to get this Yellow Honey is the open air sun-drying which has Diego mastered!

Colombia San Francisco Caturra Honey - Green

Great green coffee beans!

The coffee is excellent! I love the honey processed!

Excellent as espresso

Ran this at P1 on the Behmor 1600. Very rich, decent body with a potent citrus note. If you are familiar with the Colombia Narino Fiesta Bodhi had before, this is similar, but more so. A very nice coffee

I like other Columbians better

I don't care for this coffee. I spent a lot of time sorting out dark damaged beans. The beans had an uneven roast. The taste is ok but I was looking for the characteristic Columbian flavor.

Columbia SFC Honey

Easy to roast. There are more defects than usual with this bean but easy to pick them out before roast. That is why it gets 4 stars instead of 5. It was quite enjoyable as a coffee and as an espresso. Cupping notes are right on. I bought 20 pounds of it so looking forward to roasting more and sharing it. Roast profile: TP at 1min 176F, DE 4:40min 301F, 1C 9:02min 393F, End 11:44min 411F, RDT 23%

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
