Juan Martin

Tasting Notes: Juicy toffee apple & chocolate

Juan Martin Taquinas is a micro-lot that we are delighted to secure through a 1:1 project with one of our trusted speciality coffee trader partners. It was our March ‘Globe Trotter’ subscription coffee.

Juan and his family are part of the CENCOIC cooperative who assist with preparation, quality control and export. We are delighted to have secured all of Juan’s lot so we can offer it here, too.

Colombia is renowned for producing exceptional coffees due to its perfect terroir, and this coffee certainly doesn’t disappoint. High altitude and washed process help ensure a complex, clean and sweet character, yet with a lovely cocoa finish.

  • Location

    Juan Martin Taquinas owns the 1.4 hectare Pedregal farm where he lives with his 3 children and wife, Aura Mesa. The farm is located in Toribio within the Tacueyo reservation at an altitude of 1596m.

  • Farm / Co-op

    Cencoic - Central Cooperativa Indígena del Cauca - is a cooperative comprised of indigenous reserves in the Cauca region which exports their own coffee. Juan has been a member since 2012.

    Family support for Juan Martin, and Aura Mesa's work on the farm, has enabled the family to improve the quality of coffee while implementing agricultural practices that contribute to the conservation of water sources and soil.

  • Processing

    Manual collection is carried out with family members and neighbors, each sharing their labour with their neighbours during busy seasons. Ripe cherries have any sticks, leaves or floaters removed, and are left in cement fermentation tanks for 15 hours, washed with clean water and dried in parabolic solar driers to a moisture level of 11.5%.
    Any defects are removed again and then the coffee is packed in fique packaging, taken to the local collection site and transported to the central CENCOIC facility for quality analysis, hulling, and export preparation.
    Waste coffee pulp is processed for composting for organic liquid fertilizer, while coffee mucilage is filtered out through a handmade filter system.
