We have run out of stock for this item.

It’s been a couple of years since Nomad started to work with Finca Chambakú and they got to visit them in February during their trip to Colombia. It’s the second time that they visit Juan Felipe Restrepo, Pipe to his friends. It’s always a pleasure to see the amazing work they do on this farm. The Restrepo family always make them feel at home.

Finca Chambakú is the new project of the Restrepo family. It is a 12-hectare farm located in Villamaría, Caldas, and is one of the 17 farms that make up Hacienda el Jardín. Historically, this Hacienda has been focused on the cultivation of traditional coffee, but in recent years they have adapted and created an ideal agro-industrial system to extract all the productive potential with differentiated coffees. The Restrepo family saw in this land great potential for the production of speciality coffees thanks to the optimal conditions of the environment and the proximity to its facilities in order to maintain exhaustive control and guarantee the quality of the coffee.

Juan Felipe, Q Processor and partner of the farm, is in charge and the great architect of the protocols and processes of benefit on the farm. Among the objectives, it is worth highlighting the new protocols for fertilizing with organic matter and extreme post-harvest care. Also, greenhouses with 3-level canopies have been built to carry out a better drying process, perfecting the final cup.

A good example of the work done at Finca Chambakú. Sweet notes of ripe fruit combined with more citric hints like lemongrass in fragrance. Orange and red fruits in flavour and an intense cocoa powder and cranberry aftertaste.
