Our Single Origin Filter Colombia Victor Felix Ramirez is a very special coffee indeed and we love it for it’s well balanced acidity and the smooth well-rounded body. We are excited to bring you a Pink Bourbon this Feb, a varietal that is cultivated from hybridization of Red and Yellow Bourbon. It is very rare, and very difficult to produce with consistency. Don’t miss out on adding this to coffee to your cart.
Very Special. Brew, Share & Enjoy.
Victor Felix has been in coffee since a young age as his parents are coffee growers, from whom he has learned about the crop. He has worked in coffee for a long time and when he got married; he decided to buy his own farm to start producing coffee with his own family.
Along with his wife, Blanca Rubi, they bought their own farm in the rural area of Pitalito, south of the Huila region, and named it La Fortuna. From the start, he knew that the piece of land would bring good fortune and luck. Their journey in coffee has been going strong for 35 years now and their recent move into specialty coffee has seen them truly shine!
This change has also brought a change of mindset for Victor. He is keen to learn; he thinks more about quality and hence has acquired more knowledge that he has put into practice, improving the cup quality and the coffee trees. But also, and most important to him, coffee has united the family much more, and he is proud that they all work together, achieving what they have today.
What is X-Grade?
The “X-Grade” denomination or program is a relatively new initiative by coffee importer Caravela.
One motivator behind X-grade was to open new opportunities for buyers to purchase exotic varietals and processing alternatives that Caravela’s producers are experimenting with or implementing at their farms. Another drive was to set a framework within the exotic coffee market, as the global demand grows and a lot of producers decide to run experiments on a farm level.
What is so special about Singles? Single-origin coffees are small-batch roasts from a specific growing area within a country. Have a look at your coffee beans to see where they’ve come from. Even more specific is a microlot coffee, which comes from only one growing area or plot on a single farm. Singles and microlots allow the consumer to understand and appreciate a specific coffee for its own unique flavour profile and distinct characteristics. They also help to establish traceability from farm to cup.
