Jantioquia 2016: Celebrating Mercanta’s relationships in Antioquia, Colombia
Mercanta kicked off the beginning of 2016 by celebrating with our friends and amigos in Colombia!
For the month of January, Stephen Hurst and many other Mercanta staff welcomed friends from around the world to Antioquia and Huila to better know this beautiful country that is home to some of the world’s finest coffees. Mercanta has long invested in Colombian coffee quality, and we were so pleased to be able to share our love for this unique and special coffee origin with our guests. We even made some new friends, whose coffees we look forward to sharing with you in the coming season.
Just some of the coffee producers and farms we visited include:
- ASORCAFE members in Inza, Cauca
- Finca Los Pomos
- The Echavarria Family & Santa Barbara Estate
- Finca San Pascual
- Finca Veracruz
- Finca Camelia
- Jesús María Posada & Finca La Julia
- Finca El Tesorito
- Finca La Cascada
….and many more that we hope to see coffee from in the coming seasons!
Many thanks to all who hosted us – in particular Pedro and Leonardo from Santa Barbara Estate.
