CGLE

We are Colombian producers of ultra speciality high altitude coffees

Our combination of curiosity, scientific rationality and obsession with coffee quality has allowed us to create unique protocols of milling for our coffees, tailored to eight distinct microclimates, which are located in three different mountain ranges in Colombia.

After many years of research in coffee varieties and protocol processes, we are now ready for our first auction. The development of specific protocols, while selecting specific varieties and crop renovations is what has allowed us to present these unique lots for auction.

From great to unique coffee

Our team has been working hard to develop the best practices to select each lot to ensure that we are able to offer the right quantity and quality.

The selection:

Over the years we have been studying our different crops to identify those that are resistant to diseases and that have special characteristics. We mark every "special" tree in our field to harvest, process, and cup them differently from the others. We select seeds from these trees, looking forward to obtaining pure varieties. From the pure lots, we found out that there where areas with a better production and score, allowing us to pick the best cherries for our auction lots.

From planting to picking:

All the lots in this auction are from the highest altitude of our farms. We also take into account the age of the trees resulting in a quality difference. During the growing season, we considered the climatic amplitude (changes from cold phase to warm phase of this season of the year). Finally, the cherries are harvested at their optimum ripeness.

In our lab:

After many years of investigation, we have identified the process type best suited to result in retaining the main notes of each coffee cultivar. We have established different fermentation processes, especially for our auction lots. Once our coffees arrive at our quality lab, it’s imperative that each profile has very complex and unique notes. Finally, to ensure the quality of each lot our Q graders did more than 4 cupping tables.

We have always developed our processes with an investigative approach, looking forward to results in quality, flavours, and singularity. We always start with two main questions:

To obtain the best expression of the profile, we have standardized all of our processes:

Picking of the cherries at the correct ripe level

Fermentation process based on the Brix measurement

Stabilization at the control temperature warehouse

The most detailed mill process

Colombia's land of diversity!

Colombia is characterized by its diversity of flowers. In the coffee crops, blossom is also an important characteristic, it's an indicator of how productive the harvest is going to be, it occurs around 8 months before the main harvest.
