Meet Padre José Alejandro Aguilar Posada

Finca Villa Loyola has been PT’s Direct Trade partner since 2011. Their well-rounded coffee encourages experimentation from a roasting perspective. Two years ago, PT’s shook things up by taking it to a medium-dark roast with pleasant caramelization. Last year, a light-medium roast resulted in a sweet coffee with a velvety body and light citrus acidity. This year, they’re employing a slightly lighter roast, coaxing out surprisingly rich aromas and round flavors.

Following a first-place finish in the 2008 Colombia Cup of Excellence, Villa Loyola’s story has been one of impressive growth and improvement. In 2012, leadership of Villa Loyola fell to Padre José Alejandro Aguilar Posada. Padre Joe’s extensive knowledge and experience in agro-ecology, sustainability, rural development, regional sustainability, and eco-theology will continue to advance Villa Loyola’s sustainable practices while improving the lives of the workers and surrounding community.

Nariño, Colombia

It has been said, “The heart of Colombian coffee sits in the mountains of Nariño.” In fact, Nariño is the first coffee region in Colombia to earn recognition as as a regional denomination of origin. According to the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation, Origin Status Denominations mark agricultural products whose qualities are associated with their place of origin. The CCGF states, “Besides natural features like climate and soil conditions, denominations of origin also involve human, cultural and traditional attributes which are reflected on the development and harvesting processes of the product.” Nariño coffees are known for their intense aroma, high acidity and sweetness.

Here farms are small, and families have been growing coffee for generations. Since the area is so large, infrastructure minimal, and the crop cycle extended, most growers wash, ferment, and dry their own coffees, taking them to be sorted and graded once they have large enough lots.
