In 1987, Isaías Cantillo purchased a coffee farm in the mountainous region of Southern Huila, Colombia. Stumptown was first introduced to his coffee in 2007, when a spectacular lot won first place in Colombia’s Cup of Excellence competition. Stumptown's bought his coffee ever since.
Over the years, Isaías has continued to acquire land around the farm for each of his five sons. Today, all of his sons manage their own coffee plots independently, and Stumptown buys coffee from them as well. This is why the coffee bears the name "Cantillo Family." Throughout the harvest cycle, Stumptown receives samples of the Cantillos’ top lots – some of them representing only a few pounds of coffee – and build volume for this limited-release offering.
Tasting Notes: An elegant and floral cup with notes of melon and a velvety mouthfeel.
Since their beginnings, Stumptown has searched the world for the best coffee out there. That coffee grows in mountainous regions of the tropics — farms perched at high elevations with warm days, cool nights, and distinct rainy and dry seasons. Microclimates, soil composition, coffee cultivars, and post-harvest processing methods can each contribute distinct dimensions to the cup.
The Stumptown coffee team spends about half the year in producing countries, meeting directly with their producer partners on their farms, at their mills, and in their cupping labs.
The effort is worth it. Stumptown is not doing it the easy way by buying bulk, mid-quality beans anonymously from a trading house. Instead, they go right to the source of the best coffee — that farm atop a hill in Ethiopia, for example. They hike through fields, stand among coffee drying decks, and sit down to share a meal and talk about the crop with producers they’ve met many times.
Stumptown routinely pay producers well in excess of what they could receive on the commodity market, but they understand that their coffee demands more work — hand-picking each cherry at ideal ripeness and processing it with great attention to detail.
