Producer Profile

Finca El Triunfo is located in Palermo Huila, Colombia and run by Audon Solano. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,800 m.a.s.l. and consists of 26 hectares in total. Of those 26 hectares, approximately 3 hectares are planted in coffee, with about 4,000 trees of Caturra and 10,000 trees of V. Colombia. This lot is comprised of both varieties, as they are intertwined within the lots. Aside from coffee, Audon also grows banana and tangelo trees.


Of the many growing regions in Colombia, the mountainous department of Huila in the south west of the country grows the most coffee. Huila enjoys a wide diversity of micro-climates, temperatures, altitudes and coffee varieties. In fact, coffee is grown in 35 of Huila's 37 municipalities. All of this means that the coffee coming out of this region is as diverse as the variables that influence its production.

Caturra & Colombia

A natural mutation of Bourbon, originally discovered in Brazil in the early 20th century; Caturra derives its name from the Guarani word for “small,” a reference to its diminutive stature that results from a single-gene mutation causing dwarfism. It was this small size- allowing for more trees to be planted closer together- that led to mass selections of Caturra being made by the Instituto Agronomico (IAC) of Sao Paulo State in Campinas in the 1930’s. Caturra then made its way to Guatemala during the 1940’s and then was widely adopted in the 1970’s by the rest of Central America, where it is now one of the most economically important varieties. At high altitudes Caturra has strong quality and yield potential but unfortunately, is quite susceptible to disease.

Caturra's susceptibility to rust led to efforts by the Colombian coffee research institute, Cenicafé, to cross Caturra with Timor Hybrids to generate rust resistance. The result was Variedad Colombia, which was largely successful for a time, and remains popular despite leaf-rust mutations overtaking its resistance.


Audon's coffee is first fermented in cherry for 24 hours before de-pulping, after which the coffee is then dry fermented in a tank for a further 36 hours. Upon washing, the coffee is laid out to dry in Audon's marquesina (greenhouse style structure) for 12-18 days depending on the weather conditions.
