Introducing our second Canyon Instant: Granjeras, a seasonally-rotating selection from Colombia grown 100% by women. True to the name, "granjeras" translates to women farmers.
Origin: Huila, Colombia
Farmer: Virgelina Perdomo and her daughters
We're starting off the Granjeras series with a microlot grown by one of our favorite producers, Virgelina Perdomo. We first purchased Virgelina's coffee in 2019, enthralled by its round juiciness, sweet caramel body and notes of passion fruit.
What is a microlot?
As the name implies, a coffee microlot is relatively smaller than a normal lot, or harvest yield, of coffee. But why is it smaller? Often, microlots are the result of a single farmer or group of farmers dedicating a smaller plot of land to which they can give more time with higher quality of care and attention to detail.
