Santiago Londono is the 4th generation farmer from the Londono family. His great-grandfather planted their family’s first Typical varietal in 1932. Mallorca is a farm that producers micro-lots ranging from Typica, Caturra to more prized varietals such as Wush Wush and Geisha. With over 51 hectares of land, Santiago and his father are devoted to producing the highest quality coffees from the Valle region.
During peak harvest season he and his family employ 50 local works( 15 women and 35 men). They are dedicated to building relationships and workers come back each year to help Santiago harvest exceptional coffees. In addition to this, Colors of Nature works closely with him to ensure that micro-lots are selected and cupped on a regular basis to make sure that only the best parchment is processed.
Mallorca Caturra is hand-picked and processed on drying beds for up to 35 days. Due to lower elevation and a consistent temperature, coffees are full of high acidity, are winey and have intense tropical fruits. Most lots from Haceinda Mallorca are exported to Japan and North America.
Colors of Nature(CNC) was established in 2007 by Felipe Ramirez as a pilot project to educate coffee farmers in impoverished/conflict regions of southern Colombia on cultivating quality coffee. They have succeeded in implementing modern farm technologies on smallholder farms throughout the country and just inaugurated a new research facility this year. Currently working in 13 provinces( including Huila, Narino, Cauca, Risaralda and Cesar), Colors of Nature and its nearly 1,200 smallholder farmers are producing up to 60 micro and 15 high-premium lots each year with majority of these coffees sold to Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and North America.
