Meet Laureano Joven

This micro-lot from ASPROTimaná was offered exclusively to Caffè Umbria this year, and forms part of their Cupping Room Collection. Laureano Joven, pictured here, owns Finca Buenavista, and on that land, he has a special 2 hectare plot on which he produces the prized Caturra variety of coffee like this one.

Buenavista is tucked away in the upper valley of the Magdalena River where rich volcanic soil and coffee-friendly microclimate make for some really gorgeous coffees. In fact, this region received its Denomination of Origin in 2013, and is known for producing some of the most distinctive coffees available.

Huila, Colombia

In the southwest of Colombia, we find the Huila region, nestled on the flank of the Andes near the Nevado del Huila volcano, second highest peak in Colombia. Consistently garnering awards in Cup of Excellence competitions, coffees from this department (state) are full-bodied, with a syrupy texture, strong fruitiness, and medium to high acidity.

Gods and mythical animals hang out in the mountains of Colombia, stone monuments to a civilization that faded circa 1320 A.D., was rediscovered in the 1800’s, and is now protected by the San Agustin Archaeological Park. The country is rich in all the elements that make it prime coffee-growing territory.

Caffè Umbria

Seattle-based Caffè Umbria may have opened its doors in 2002, but it is built on 3 generations of the Bizzarri family’s roasting tradition which began in Perugia, Italy in the 1940s. 40 years later, Emanuele Bizzarri’s father emigrated to the U.S. and started a coffee company, Torrefazzione Italia. That’s where Emanuele, Pasquale Madeddu, and Jesse Sweeney met and worked together for years. Ultimately the 3 friends partnered together to create their own roasting company, Caffè Umbria. What began as a small operation now produces over 1 million pounds annually and extends to 9 retail cafés from Seattle and Portland to Chicago and Miami. In fact, Caffè Umbria was chosen by Architectural Digest as Illinois' most beautiful coffee shop, Jan. 2019.

Caffè Umbria excels in personal service and delicious coffee blends that represent the Bizzarri family traditions of unique and balanced coffees.They also offer an exciting array of single origin coffees and craft custom coffee programs for the food service industry across the nation. Passionate about building relationships with the cities and neighborhoods in which they work, creating warm welcoming spaces with a European flair, all their locations are known for well-prepared drinks and outstanding service in a beautiful environment. Fun fact: As a nod to their heritage, Caffè Umbria’s logo features the Arco Etrusco, one of the gateways into the heart of old Perugia, Italy in the beautiful Umbria region.
