THE STORY BEHIND

Besides studying 3 days a week in distant Medellin, 26-year old Daniel Hernandez has been working extremely hard in the past 4 years to improve the quality of his family’s farm, El Nido. Urrao, a 3,5hr drive from Medellin in one of the more remote regions of Antioquia, won fame a few years ago when, the now world famous in Colombia, Doña Carmen won the Cup of excellence with a lot of Caturro Chirozo.

The quality of Daniel’s coffee was first picked up by coffee Expert Andres Ruiz, of the educational institute El Sena. Andres runs his own specialty coffee bar in Medellin and has been serving small batches of finca el Nido for 2 years already. He mentored Daniel to improve the quality even more and increase consistency. He convinced Daniel to compete in the regional contest ‘Taza de Antioquia’ one of the most professionally organised regional contests in Colombia. The contest is held almost every year and judges and buyers from all continents are invite to select the best coffees from this gigantic coffee department. Over 800 coffees were entered in the contest. During this edition there were judges from the US, Europe and Korea. Two cuppers of our Colombian partner TMO helped decide the final 25 winners. Finca El Nido came in second but was the favourite of our team from the start. Because of Daniel’s age he was the winner of the ‘young coffee farmer’ competition. But to us he was the winner overall.
