Hernando is a third-generation coffee farmer who inherited La Glorieta farm when his father Hernando Arcila passed away 20 years ago. La Glorita is a 35-hectare farm located at 1400 m.a.s.l in Armenia, Quindio. They mainly grow traditional Colombian varieties such as Caturra, Castillo, and Typica.

Hernando and his wife Maria Fernanda have two young children, Simon and Tomas. Hernando and Maria manage all the operations on their farm and they provide jobs for their local community which supports growth in their region.

This coffee is harvested following strict ripeness criteria, floated, and hand-sorted to remove any defects. Cherries were then exposed to 30 hours of underwater fermentation before being pulped. The parchment was then gently washed and then dried in temperature-controlled conditions until ideal moisture content was achieved. This microlot is 100% Caturra. This variety originated in Minas Gerais, Brazil. It is a natural mutation of Red Bourbon. Caturra produces more coffee and is more resistant to plant diseases than Bourbon.

Please use the drop down menu below to select whether you would like your coffee as whole beans or ground. The Brew Method is only relevant if you require your coffee ground, so that we can grind it to our lab-tested specifications for the tastiest brew! If you’re getting whole bean, feel free to leave it on “Espresso”. Please make sure all your selections are correct before checking out, once the beans go through the grinder we’re unfortunately unable to return them!
