El Yalcón is a Colombian specialty coffee produced by small scale growers in the municipality of La Plata. The name comes from the Indigenous pueblo that used to be where La Plata is today. This special coffee is the result of many years of collaboration between Caravela and the cooperatives Global Cafes and Occicafe. There are 36 small and medium sized coffee producers from La Plata and El Pital who make up this coffee. These farms range from 1 to 5 hectares and are mostly located at higher altitudes. They are also mostly cultivated with traditional varieties such as Caturra and Typica.
In order to guarantee a consistent quality and cup profile, every single lot delivered – no matter its size – is physically analysed and cupped. Only the best lots that fit the El Yalcón profile are selected.
