Story

In 2019, we visited Colombia in order to seek out the famed Inmaculada Coffee Farms. Before making the drive to Pinchindé, we met Fernando Oka, who graciously showed us around Cali, Colombia. Over the afternoon, we quickly realized that Fernando is a bit of an institution among the population of Cali. Everywhere we went, Fernando was greeted and invited in, making his rounds to the tables before settling in. We like to joke that Fernando is the unofficial Governor of Cali with how well-networked and social he is, but the truth is that Fernando is an extremely passionate person. Fernando has a deep love for food and wine, not to mention coffee, but most of all for people. His beloved nature extends well beyond the town of Cali, Colombia, to the greater specialty coffee world. We’ve been lucky enough to travel the world with Fernando, and yet it still feels like we are sitting in a restaurant in Cali, as he is just as likely to make his social rounds in Greece as he is in Colombia. As he struck out on his own to aid in connecting roasters with specialty producers from Colombia, we were quick to support him as often as we could.

The outcome of our close partnership has been a curated offering list that we’ve assembled over the past few months of harvest. As we make our way through this curated lineup, we’ve asked Fernando a series of questions, which you can find below.

Speaking into our relationship as an extension of our sourcing program; How did you find this coffee, and who grew it?
I knew about this coffee after 2023 WBC, Julio is a friend of mine and we cupped it together in Bogota in October 2023. Julio Madrid and Julio Quiceno started producing and processing together coffee in 2013. Their work is notable after achieving 2nd place in WBC 2023 with Daniele Ricci's Caturra Nitro. They owned three farms Buenos Aires, Milan and La Rivera and they produce Sl28, Sudan Rume, Moka, Pink bourbon, and Java.

How did you meet this producer?
I met Julio in 2016 in a coffee lab at The biggest coffee Mill in Valle del Cauca.

How was it processed, and what stood out about this particular coffee?
This coffee is a great example of high standards processing as it involves a fermentation with lactobacillus, Pichia, and Sachamyses with watermelon in fruit. The coffee is balanced and complex which reflects this unique way of processing Watermelon is there but it's so balanced.

What are the growing conditions of this coffee?
La Riviera farm is located in Santa Rosa de Cabal Risarald at 1750 meters up on sea level. Ecologically grown with shade a cover trees.

What trends are you seeing in Colombian specialty coffee?
*Julio Madrid and Julio Quiceno are in this selected group of experienced processors who are setting standards for the new generation. **

What are you hoping to highlight as we curate more coffees together?
This coffee for me represents the present a future of coffee as making these crazy ways of processing will make coffee evolve all the time and it will be sustainable.

Green Cost

The subject of paying for green coffee is inherently complicated. While the amount paid is very important, the payment terms and type of contract negotiated during the purchase are also paramount. Paying $5/lb of coffee can be a great price, but could be detrimental to a producer if the payment terms exceed that of their needs. Here we will dive into not only what was paid for the coffee, but how the coffee was purchased. There is a glossary of terms to be found below which will aid in your understanding of industry terms.

Farm Gate - This reflects what is paid to the producer of the coffee at the farm level. Oftentimes in terms of our relationship coffees, FOB is fairly close to the farm gate price, except for countries like Ethiopia and Kenya, when it is very difficult to trace back all the way to the producer.

FOB - Free on Board. This means that the seller is responsible for any overland fees that happen before the coffee is on board the ship. This is our most frequently listed green cost, as it is the most simple way to present what we pay a seller, but it does not reflect what the person growing the coffee was paid.

EXW- This most often reflects the 'spot' price that we paid for a coffee. All of the cost is paid by the importer, and more often than not the FOB price as well as the transport costs are unknown.
