La Florida is owned and farmed by Segundo Ruiz Salvador. Segundo’s 5 hectare farm is mostly planted with yellow caturra, the lot that we purchased was 100% yellow caturra and the results in the cup are something special.
San Jose de Lourdes is an area which is growing in popularity, since the cup profile is remarkably similar to that of Huila in Colombia, very citric with an incredible buttery characteristic. Segundo is one of the leading producers in this area; the quality of this year’s crop was so good we bought the entire lot!
Balanced citric sweetness with an incredibly buttery body.
