Finca Belgravia is an experimental farm owned by Caravela—our longtime sourcing partners in Colombia. As owners of Finca Belgravia, they are also members of the Orgánica cooperative, which includes the growers of our La Golondrina coffee. On this small, 3-hectare farm, Caravela's team experiments with new processing techniques, more-sustainable ways of farming, and growing different botanical coffee varieties that they test for quality. This selection of Tabi variety coffee has notes of black cherry, butterscotch, and tangerine.
Finca Belgravia is on a small, beautiful parcel of land set in a flat valley that's only 10 kilometers from the colonial city of Popayán, Cauca. The high-elevation farm is also very close to the slopes of Volcán Puracé, an active volcano in Colombia. In 2008, Caravela, our exporter and import partners in Colombia bought this land from Nelson Melo, and, in doing so, became part of Orgánica association—the producers of our La Golondrina coffee. Orgánica was founded in 2002 and is one of the original groups that Caravela started working with in the country.
Today, Finca Belgravia acts as Caravela’s Coffee Innovation Center, which focuses on experimenting with new varieties, processing methods, and more-sustainable ways to grow and produce coffee.
