About The Coffee

One of the standout experiences from our visit to the Specialty Coffee Association Expo was discovering the honey-processed coffee from Honey Medina farm in Nariño, offered by In Conexus. This coffee perfectly encapsulated the qualities Nick and I always look for. It featured a robust body akin to that of a naturally processed coffee, with pronounced notes of red and dark fruits. It maintained a cleaner taste than a natural process while preserving the expected body of such coffees.

The honey processing method, when masterfully done, brings together the best attributes of both natural and washed coffees, and the Honey Medina honey coffee is a prime example of this mastery. Its flavor profile is exactly what we think will appeal greatly to our customers. For the best taste experience, we suggest brewing this coffee as an espresso, which is also excellent for milk-based drinks, or as a pour-over.

About the Producer

Franco Lopéz has lived in La Mina for many years; in fact,
he inherited the farm from his parents. He says that he decided to dedicate his whole life to coffee because he wants to maintain his family's tradition. In addition, every day, he finds a new way to improve the production of coffee, even in small steps.

In the farm, you can find it is organized by plot, the age of the coffee trees, and varietal. You can also find other types of plantations, such as corn, kidney beans, bananas, oranges, and tangerines. On the other hand, he feels grateful for this product, since, thanks to coffee, Franco's family has been united for a long time because he shares the land with his brothers, and they are enthusiastic about the quality of coffee.

This family has been pleasantly surprised by their performance in different contests, such as the Cup of Excellence, where they emerged victorious. They felt their many years of effort and constant learning from processing had been rewarded. Also, they have been working hard to improve infrastructure and their village road. This family's primary purpose is to integrate agricultural regenerative practices into their farm to recover the soil. He hopes to keep sharing his knowledge and passion with his family and community to produce better coffee!
