Johan Penna has been producing coffee at Finca El Caucho since 2013.
Only a small portion of Johan's 5-acre farm is dedicated to coffee
farming. This is important because, as we've seen on other farms, a
diversity of plant life aids in filtering direct sunlight from these
shade-loving coffee shrubs. Due to geography and weather conditions,
harvest timelines in Inza vary slightly from year to year. This
season, the coffee from El Caucho was harvested in Winter 2019.

This coffee was sourced through a partnership between Red Fox Coffee
Merchants and Cauca producer association Asorcafe. The group was
founded in 2004 by ten coffee growers who were tired of selling their
coffee to parchment buyers who only offered prices below the national
market.  In conjunction with private and state organizations, Asorcafe
provides aid to their members including subsidies for the domestic
economy, education, job training, and healthcare services. Coffee from
this group of producers is stunningly complex. Often one can detect a
distinct honey sweetness with a rounded acidity reminiscent of
pear and citrus.
