Family matters and Norbey Quimbayo is the perfect example of how ‘keeping it in the family’ is important for success.
Don Norbey is the head of the Quimbayo clan and his farm ‘La Esmeralda’, located in the Acevedo District in the region of Huila, Colombia. The farm is owned and run by Don Norbey, his wife and two children.
The farm is 12 hectares in size with 5 hectares being assigned specifically for coffee production. On his farm, Norbey also produces plantain and some fruit trees such as lime and mandarin.
Norbey first started out in coffee working as a picker at different farms across Huila. In 2005, he was given the opportunity to buy a portion of what is now his farm, La Esmeralda.
In 2010, Norbey stepped into the world of Specialty Coffee production and started planting exotic varieties such as Gesha, Papayo and Pink bourbon, among others. Since making the change, he has experienced greater premiums for his work and gained international recognition for his coffees.
This micro-lot is 100% Tabi. This is a new variety developed by the “Federación Nacional de Cafeteros.” This unique variety is a cross between the Timor Hybrid, Bourbon, and Typica.
In the cup you will get a golden colour, with soothing flavours of chamomile tea and brown sugar.
