In 2010 the Holguin family began their journey in Valle del Cauca focusing on growing exotic varieties and processing them to highlight their terroir. Majority of what they grow are very low-yielding and difficult to grow, proving their commitment to their goal to "produce the most extraordinary coffees possible, regardless of risk or costs."
Inmaculada Coffee began with 5 hectares which has now grown into 50 hectares, of which 30 are planted and the rest is kept as natural forest. On this land are four different farms El Jardin, Monserrat, Inmaculada Concepcion and Las Nubes where this coffee has been grown. Apart from the Sudan Rume varietal, they have also planted some of the rarest and most special coffees in the world such as Eugenoides, Laurina, Gesha and Maragesha.
We are greatly honoured to secure their Sudan Rume varietal, known for its hardy resistance to the coffee cherry disease it originated in the mountains of Marsabit, Sudan. A mutation with the Bourbon varietal, it's bursting with tropical fruit flavours, super sweet confectionary such as red lollies, white chocolate and a lot of fresh peaches. Sasa Sestic took this coffee to win the World Barista Championships in 2015.
