Fresh in at Square Mile Coffee Roasters - La Virgen from the Huila region of Colombia.

The group of growers that produce this coffee are all located within the municipality of Guadalupe, named in honour of the Virgin of Guadalupe who is said to have protected the people of the town during a devastating earthquake in 1827. The group has grown quickly and now numbers 100 members, having been started in 2003 by just four farmers in the Esperanza neighbourhood. Javier Joven Penagos, Javier Figueroa Núñez, Fernando Guzmán and Pablo Cuellar believed that by joining up to commercialize their coffee they could achieve both higher prices, and be recognized for the quality of their product. They now sell more than 300 bags of coffee per year under the name La Virgen, a mix of Caturra and Colombia varieties from their smallholder members farms.
