About: Traudel Gerhmann Mick is a German-Peruvian coffee farmer who speaks several languages and is deeply passionate about experimentation with her coffee lots. With her husband, Juan Luis Vier, an engineer, and Juan Atkins of Peru Global, she has pivoted from largely conventional coffee to a dedicated specialty focus that includes planting many new varieties and processing experiments. The farm is lush and beautiful, located high in the mountains of Villa Rica.
The town of Pitalito, in south Huila, is situated between the central and eastern mountain ranges. The topography promotes temperatures and humidity levels which are beneficial to the maturing coffee cherries. The remarkable sweetness produced in this region garnered the attention of our green buying team in late 2016. Victor Imbachi and his team cultivate coffee on 4 hectares of land. Five Points is excited to bring you the best of their most recent harvest.
Following cherry selection and wet-milling, beans are transported to the Traviesa cold-mill in Manizales, Colombia. This advanced quality control facility is designed for sorting, packing, and storing of specialty coffee. On a recent visit to the mill, our sourcing team witnessed a finely tuned array of mechanical and optical sorting methods used to process this lot. At every step - from the producer, mill, export, and roaster - our coffee is treated with tremendous care and respect. Enjoy!
