Hugo and three generations of his extended family produce coffee outside of Alto del Obispo in an isolated part of southwest Huila, Colombia. Hugo thoughtfully tends to his farm with his brother in law Yamid. They tend to the soil and coffee trees with diligent care. In 2022 they did a major pruning of their trees to prevent pest and fungi spreading. They also make organic fertilizer from compost to fix the soil with potassium and other essential minerals for healthy coffee trees and production. Because of this the soil at El Renacer is rich and paired with the high altitude micro climate yields enzymatically delightful coffees. After harvesting Hugo & Yamid float the cherries to remove any unripe cherries, then pre-ferment, wash and ferment again before being meticulously dried for almost a month. Hugo’s coffee is a beautiful bouquet of flavor with notes of: dark chocolate, honey, cherry, pecan & cola.
