San Sebastian is produced by members of Occicafe, a coffee grower association based in the municipality of La Plata, in Southwest Huila. This coffee is a great example of a balanced, round and sweet Colombian cup, showing notes of dark chocolate, citrus peel, red cherries and caramel. The Asociacion de Productores de Café de Alta Calidad del Occidente del Huila (Occicafe) was founded in 2003 and is the result of the merger of several smaller coffee grower associations that existed in La Plata at the time. Today the association has over 320 members from the municipalities of La Argentina, La Plata, Paicol, Nataga and Tesalia. Its members are small-scale coffee growers, whose farms range from 1 to 5 hectares and at altitudes ranging between 1,400 and 1,900 m.a.s.l. All of them process their coffee in their small beneficios and then dry the coffee in covered patios until the coffee reaches the optimal moisture level. Our importer has a dedicated quality analyst working side-by-side with the growers and cupping every single grower lot brought by them to the warehouse. Only the best lots and those that fit the cup profile are incorporated into San Sebastian, which are generally composed of over 30 different individual grower lots. Notes of Chocolate, citrus peel, and red cherry.
