Background: 

 

Producer Jhon Samboni purchased Finca Santa Barbara in 2019. His focus on high quality cultivation and processing is evident in his coffee, which is fruity and clean with florals, stone fruit and citrus.

When he’s not producing excellent lots like this one, Jhon has a vibrant Youtube channel where he sings Vallenato and Norteño (popular local music) for his many followers.

The Huila region is one of the most well-known coffee growing areas of Colombia. The Department of Huila has a population of 1.125 million and is located in the southwest of the country. The capital of the department is Neiva, a city of about 380,000.  

Along with Cauca and Nariño, Huila is one the three departments where the Colombian Massif is located. A massif is a group of mountain ranges, and the Colombian Massif, which is known locally as Nudo de Almaguer, provides up to 70% of safe drinking and agricultural water for the Colombian population. 

The Magdalena River, the Colombia’s largest river, runs through the region, providing plenty of water for coffee farming and generating (directly and indirectly) up to 86% of Colombia GDP. The mountain range also features the fertile volcanic soil so typical to the Andean Mountains.

In addition to coffee, Jhon also cultivates yucca, avocado, tomato, sugarcane and peas.

Coffee is selectively handpicked and then sealed in airtight containers to ferment for 70 hours. Following fermentation, cherry is pulped and washed in clean water. Jhon lays coffee to dry on marquesinas, parabolic dryers on the roof of his house. Jhon rakes parchment frequently to ensure even drying. It takes approximately 20 days for coffee to dry.
