Origin Story

José Hernán Salazar Benavides & Marina Elina Ansasoy

This unique coffee was produced by José Hernán Salazar Benavides and
Marina Elina Ansasoy on their farm Finca La Guaca, which is situated in the
town of Pitalito of Southern Colombia. The farm was sparsely planted with
coffee trees when José took over farm ownership in 2001. The previous
owner taught José proper processing techniques and farm management.
Today, José primarily focuses on harvesting and fermentation, while his wife
Marina manages the washing and drying of the coffee. In addition to
coffee, the family also cultivates plantain, yucca, beans, corn and tomatoes
for personal consumption and supplement income.

Why We Love This Coffee

José’s and Marina’s coffee was initially brought to our attention at Colombia’s Cup of Excellence competition in 2020, where we purchased it through the Cup of Excellence auction. As a result of the success José and Marina experienced from that competition, they recently decided to renovate their farm and replant it with Bourbon and Ají (Ethiopia Landrace) varieties. This lot is a Pink Bourbon variety coffee. The Bourbon variety is a naturally occurring mutation of Typica from the island of Bourbon, now called Réunion, and is one of the most genetically significant contributors to non-native Ethiopian cultivars.
