Franco Emidio Bastidas Bravo grows this Castillo on his smallholding in Ancuya, south central Narino, alongside bananas, plantains, citrus fruits, and guava. He works the land with his wife Alicia, and grandson Luis Felipe. We've been buying coffee directly from the local cooperative with whom Franco works for several years now, and are thrilled with how consistently high quality his coffees are.
We get notes of grape, dark chocolate, and toffee.
