Meet Smallholder producers

This coffee is a collection of smaller specialty lots too small to make up their own separate lot. Smallholder farmers around the town of Gigante in the Huila Department of Colombia have each picked their ripe cherries then processed them at their own small on site washing stations.

After they dry the beans by on raised beds under parabolic covers to bring them to the correct humidity level, they bring them to the Gigante. Once in Gigante, with its signature giant La Ceiba trees, it’s readied to travel to “Gigantes” in San Francisco.

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. Most farmers still de-pulp their coffees with hand-cranked depulpers, but clean execution turns out exemplary beans.

Huila is steeped in farming tradition. Its rich, volcanic soils and lush climate are ideal for many crops including yucca, sugar cane, bananas, cocoa, and beans. And of course—coffee.This region lies relatively close to the equator which means that coffee harvesting here happens almost year round. Rich volcanic soils, lush climate, altitude all combine to make coffee from the Huila district some of the most exquisite in Colombia.

Ritual Coffee

When Ritual opened its doors on Valencia Street in 2005, they started what many call a coffee revolution in San Francisco. Their goal then—and their goal now—is to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period. A pioneer in the recent shift of consciousness that has defined the modern coffee industry, they’ve learned a lot over the years. Still, the care and attention they lavish on their process is unchanged as they work to bring the very best out of the coffees they painstakingly choose, roast, and deliver fresh to coffee lovers worldwide.

With 5 retail stores in the bay area and a roasting facility in the SoMa district of San Francisco, Ritual takes pride in a growing number of direct trade relationships with coffee producers around the world, working with farmers to help them improve their quality with each passing season.
