A new generation of coffee growers is in sight: young people who grew up amid coffee plantations and were able to mix the roots of this tradition with new dreams. In our latest installment, we bring to our subscribers’ table a coffee fruit of these stories, it comes cultivated by Silvio Cañizares Sanchez, a Colombian young men who has managed to combine his life between movie times and times of coffee.
Cultivated 1760 meters above sea level, the coffee from the “Loma Linda” farm in Buesaco, north of Nariño department, southwestern Colombia, is the result of a family tradition that began in 1976 and now is in charge of Silvio’s delicate and profound look, an independent filmmaker who, in many other achievements, has garnered being cinematographer of the film “ The Night” selected in the Short Film Corner at Cannes in 2012.
Accompanied by his dogs, especially preta (one of his favorites), Silvio has achieved a high quality cup, which is the result of the wealth of the land he cares, abundant water sources, and the presence of fruit trees. But above all, it is the result of the conservation of the knowledge from the past and an identity film-coffee maker that continues to dream and work.
Think of images, think of coffee. It is inspired by the beauty of the magical volcanic soil that is his department, the wonders of his country, Colombia and the endless creative possibilities of the countries where he has traveled, always returning to his center, to his origin: “Loma Linda”.
This single origin Buesaco Nariño is defined by a malic acid (green apples); a creamy body; honey and caramel aroma and a lingering fruity flavor, this coffee has been achieved through hard work, that as in the best scenes of the film, does not neglect any detail.
In Worbunna we remain complicit in dreams. We know we live from what we love is wonderful and we love that we have contributed to Silvio continue journeying his way as a high quality coffee grower and we hope very soon to know of his films as well.
