The Bean Hunter’s Travels: Colombia 2014

As you may already know, we travel to the ends of the earth to find the best coffee beans on the planet to air-roast them to perfection for you to enjoy. Bean Hunter Jon Ferguson recently took off on a journey to Colombia. He’ll be keeping us updated on his coffee adventures so keep an eye on The Pilot’s Blog for updates!

I’ve made it safely to Neiva, Colombia, which is where the Cup of Excellence competition is being held. Neiva is the capitol of the department of Huila.

At the end of this week, I will be visiting Pitalito and a few farms and mills to get in touch with this year’s crop yields, quality, and also what the outlook is on these issues in the future. I also have plans to visit San Isidro, which is where the newest Roasterie micro-lot reserve coffee is from. The Colombia San Isidro is not yet available for purchase but keep an eye out for it come late September! Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for more updates!
