THE STORY BEHIND

Colombia's Manantiales del Frontino is a 170-hectares estate in Caicedonia, Valle de Cauca, and one of the country's most prestigious coffee enterprises.
The farm has more than 10 varieties of coffee in different altitudes between 1500 and 2000 masl, planted along with native forests and pure meltwater from the central mountain range (Cordillera Central), which potentiates the best attributes of each variety to achieve cups and outstanding mixtures.

Owner Andres Felipe Londoño and his team have pushed the quality envelope far with thoughtful planning and development of varietals like Geisha, Red and Yellow Bourbon, Castillo and Colombia. In 2011 their Geisha was named “coffee of the year” at the SCAA conference and in 2012 gained recognition by the Rainforest Alliance for superior environmental stewardship.
For having the Rainforest Alliance, the farm must be diverse and that is why you can find platano trees, avocados, and a big part in native trees, preserved by local authorities.

Our Red Bourbon lot comes from a sector of the farm at about 1700-1800 meters abutting pine plantations. The soil and microclimate attributes make for characteristic lively acidity, with notes of red apple and mandarin, plus nice sweetness and overall body.
