The coffee story



Finca Hoyo Frio tiene su sede en la ciudad de Curití en Santander, Norte de Colombia. Es propiedad de Félix Morantes y su hermano Ales. El hijo mayor de Félix, que lleva su nombre, gestiona las exportaciones de la finca y también ha fundado una tostadora para comercializar su café localmente. A los 23 años, Félix decidió dejar su trabajo en la cervecería para trabajar con su padre. Recuerda lo molesto que fue ver el arduo trabajo de su padre y su tío siendo mal pagado por las bodegas locales.

Cultivado bajo la sombra de árboles nativos, este micro lote de Red Castillo fue recogido manualmente por la familia. Después de la recolección, las cerezas se dejaron reposar dentro de bolsas durante la noche. A la mañana siguiente, el café se despulsa sin agua y se fermenta nuevamente en "baba" o mucílago durante 36 horas. El lote se secó lentamente en el patio, supervisado por Ales. El resultado es una taza dulce con notas de whisky escocés, jarabe de arce y tabaco dulce.

Hola! My name is Felix and I'm 29 years old. I currently help my father, also Felix, and uncle Ales on promoting and exporting the coffees from their farm Hoyo Frio. They are both really involved in the day to day work at the farm - my father always joins the pickers because he really enjoys it - so I take care of some of the admin. Our farm sits in the mountains between Curiti and San Gil in Santander, Colombia, at around 1900 m above sea level. All our coffees are shade-grown and mature slowly. We are working on honey processing and improving the production of micro-lots that we wish to keep exporting directly to buyers. We also want to help our local community and promote Santander as one of the best coffee producing areas in the country.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
