Look who’s back! One of the most beloved coffees in our ‘superb six’ bundle last december: This Bourbon Aji from Finca El Diviso. Nestor, who took over the farm from his parents, has already proven big time that he’s more eager than the average coffee farmer to produce something of high quality and with a unique or innovative approach. One to look out for, that’s for sure!

Finca El Diviso – CATA – Keen Coffee

Collaboration

Nestor Lasso, a name that currently doesn’t seem to be ignored in the world of specialty coffee. This mastermind is everywhere! A major performance for these young farmers who only took over their parents farm approx 5 years ago. Nestor and his Brother Adrian work together closely with ‘Jhoan Vergara’ (Finca Las flores) under the name ‘El Diviso’. Within this short timespan, they got all eyes in their direction. Consider them as top guns of the Huila region, because since these three youngsters united their knowledge, the quality of coffees like this ‘bourbon aji’ are unthinkable outside the competition industry. Enjoy this uniquely processed coffee bursting of elderflower, toffee and lemongrass.

According to Nestor, a lot of young people in his area preferred to go to town and find an office job or a less physically demanding job because they think that the coffee is not worth it. But when he realised that specialty coffee offered a real possibility of economic development, and that in addition he could develop his knowledge of coffee production, and in particular the processes, he really got into coffee farming and special processing methods.
