The San Sebastian is a coffee showcasing the work of small shareholders in the municipality of La Plata in Huila. The coffee is produced by the Asociacion de Productores de Cafe de Alta Calidad del Occidente del Huila (OCCICAFE).  The profile found in this coffee is the result of piecing together around 30 exceptional lots to create a clean and sweet cup.  Nearly one thousand lots are cupped to build a lot of this size and quality. The growers involved in OCCICAFE all work side by side with quality analysis and are responsible for the harvesting, milling and drying of their coffee. La Plata is a small town of about 50,000 residents which was initially named San Sebastian de La Plata by early settlers. While La Plata has historically been known for silver, today’s economy is mostly agriculture. This season will mark the 5th harvest we have purchased from San Sebastian!
