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

Bold yet yielding

Bold yet yielding. Full body with notes of citrus. Great by itself or as a blend. Really packs taste and yumminess.

Excellent Cup!

Sweet, delicious, full body cup. Very enjoyable with my morning wake-n-bake :)


Colombia San Francisco Caturra Honey - Green

Super average Colombian

I really wanted to love this bean. I had been watching it since it came in stock, but it was a little out of my price range. Then I saw a coupon for 10% off Colombians at Bodhi Leaf and it was suddenly just affordable. But I'm pretty disappointed after a full roasting session. The orange and molasses are very muted and it just doesn't pop like I'd expect a honey processed bean to do. Also there is a significant amount of inconsistency in the bean quality, enough that you can tell in the finished roasted product. It's a very average Colombian bean and certainly more expensive than I'd expect and want to pay for it.

farm to cup

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