Finca La Conchita
Antioquia is typically known for large coffee estates serving the commercial grade market, and this is still much the case. However, things might be changing as the younger generation is beginning to take over the production. Juan David Cardona is one of the producers we are working with in Antioquia. Together with a group of other young producers, they have formed a group, lead by Juan Saldarriaga and supported by Nordic Approach, that are looking at coffee production in this region with a new perspective.
Juan David Cardona’s farm is 20 hectares in total, but only 3 hectares are with coffee. All trees are new and were planted in 2011. The first trees he planted was Caturra and Colombia, but the plan is to grow Tabi as well.
The equipment at the farm is old and worn down, and not very reliable. The pulping and drying for the higher quality lots is therefore done at Juan Saldarriaga’s facility, but Juan David is investing in new equipment and upgrading his beneficio so that he will be able to process all of his coffee at his own facility.
This proves why we firmly believe that Antioquia has a massive potential, with a cup profile that is distinct and different from the other Colombians. Working with this group of young producers, we are already seeing huge developments and some fantastic coffees.
