We are delighted to introduce Finca La Gabriela the latest in our award winning WU36 range of exotic coffees.

Finca La Gabriela is at the heart of Catalinas family who we have sourced this beautiful gesha varietal through.

La Gabriela is a farm that has been in Catalinas family for over a 100 years and Catalina's grandma received the 26 hectare farm as a wedding present from her parents so with her new husband they would have an opportunity to grow food provide for themselves through coffee. This farm is a sacred place to the family and the farm is named after Catalina's grandma, Gabriela Vasquez.

The family have grown and developed the land over the last 5 years they have made this farm their “garden of eden” where they have planted exotic varietals including Java, Pacamara, Red & yellow Bourbon, Gesha, Tabi, Maragoype and Typica. These are also grown with the regular varietals of Castillo, Colombia and Caturra on the farm. These coffee plants are grown in the rich red fertile soil that is slightly alkaline across the 9 plots that make up this farm that is also certified by the Rain Forest Alliance.

On La Gabriela they have 45 employees in total. There is a huge emphasis placed on picking ripe cherry too with signs positioned around the farm to help workers understand the importance of this to the quality of the coffee.

This natural Gesha coffee comes from one plot on the farm where these trees are just 5 years in age. The coffee is carefully selected before it is then taken to the wet mill where it is cleaned, floated and separated. After this it is then taken to the constructed drying house they have built on the farm. This tent has 100 small beds where they can lay out the coffee and dry it slowly moving it 5 times a day and drying it for between 15 - 20 days weather depending at around 35 centigrade. 



“Great talk you gave at the TEDx meeting.”
“Terrific about the BAFTA for Best Documentary. Don’t you think?”

People inevitably make assumptions about you based on your choice of coffee, so why not proffer a cup that nudges them in interesting directions?
