Mr. Pablo Guerrero was the first to introduce coffee to the Tangua area outside of the city of Pasto in the year 2000. Hacienda¬†El¬†Obraje¬†has been in Pablo‚Äôs family for many years and originally produced wheat and other grains.¬†By 2009, Pablo had built a facility to process his own coffee and entered the specialty coffee market.¬†
The climate and terrain of¬†Obraje¬†are major contributing factors to its coffee‚Äôs unique cup profile. Temperatures vary greatly in a day, from 32 degrees Celsius at noon to 8 degrees or less at night.¬†Obraje¬†is located near many volcanic mountains and the rocky soil is filled with minerals.¬†The hundred-hectare Hacienda¬†El¬†Obraje¬†is a truly stunning property in the mountains of the Nari√±o, with coffee planted on the slopes descending to a river valley.¬†El Obraje‚Äôs wet mill on the property is extremely tidy and includes tile fermentation tanks, depulping equipment, mechanical oven dryers, and raised drying beds under a solar dryer. Coffee processing begins as soon as the cherries are harvested.
Tasting notes of mango, orange, and very juicy texture.
