About this coffee:

Born and bought up in Urrao, Anitoquia by coffee producing parents, Jose Arcadio Rueda’s passion for coffee was encouraged from a young age. Today this passion is shared by his wife, Marbeluz, and teenage son, Santiago, both of whom help Sr. Arcadio on the farm. Over the 16 years since buying the plot, they have together built up a plantation of 9500 trees of Caturra variety (locally known as Caturro Chirozo). 

The family’s interest in specialty coffee was ignited five years ago when they won the very first regional coffee contest in which they participated. The success of being recognized as one of the best coffees in Antioquia combined with their desire to continue producing high quality coffee gave them the motivation to continue competing.

Their hard work culminated in 2013, when Finca La Falda placed 7th in the Colombian Cup of Excellence. This was a significant win not just for the Arcadio Rueda family but also for the Department of Antioquia, who is a major player in the coffee production of the country but had never before ranked in the Cup of Excellence top 10.

This coffee has one of the greatest complex aromatics that we ever tasted. Lovely floral notes of coffee blossom and honey sweetness, a rare find from Colombian coffee. It's so delicious that we had to take this for our Blaq Coffee subscription box
