Francisco Cardona Martin founded La Colmenita in 2002. His farm is approximately eleven acres in area and is punctuated by breathtaking views. This micro-lot is a blend of two varieties, Catuai and Caturra. Don Francisco is vigilant about depulping his coffee just after picking and carefully ferments for up to twenty-four hours. He is a true perfectionist.
Don Francisco has resourcefully constructed his coffee drying patio on the top level of his house with his living space below. The layout is similar to the multiple levels of a beehive. Aptly, the name La Colmenita means “the little beehive”.
After repose, we seal this coffee in Grain-Pro barrier packaging in Guatemala and then send on its way to our Roastery where we preserve the green coffee under hermetic seal until it is roasted as part of our Barrington Green Seal Program©.
