COLOMBIA MANUEL JOSE MOSQUERO
A neighbor of a recent coffee we offered (Ignacio Quintero), Manuel Jose Mosquero’s farm El Porvenir is a glorious coffee filled with big fruit flavors and so much depth. His farm sits around 1850 masl, and he grows Caturra and Tabi varieties. His farm is in the Department of Inzá, and more specifically located in the town of Agua Blanca (pictured in the main image of this page). Overall, El Porvenir, Agua Blanca, and Inzá are all located in the amazing growing region of Cauca, one of our favorites.

More About This Coffee
Deep in the interior of Colombia’s department of Cauca lies the province of Inzá, known in Colombia as La Tierra Adentro. On a good day, it is a two hour drive from Popayán and La Plata in either direction, but frequent mudslides and road closures mean it’s often not easily accessible. On clear days in the village of Inzá, one can see straight up to the Nevado del Huila, the highest volcano in Colombia. The famous Paez river runs east through the valley, connecting Cauca and Huila. Very little coffee is grown below 1750 masl with a great portion growing at 1900 masl. Caturra, Castillo, and Typica are found in the region, with Caturra being the dominant variety.
