Oscar Ferney Olarte descends from the coffee-growing royalty of Pital Colombia. His grandfather, who lives a short walk from Oscar’s home, is known as “The Maestro of Pital” and has farmed coffee in this region since the mid-20th century. A decade ago, Oscar inherited a single hectare of Colombian trees rooted in some of the rockiest soils we’ve ever seen – and yet, this plot consistently delivers a bright, tasteful cup. In 2015, Oscar won top honours in the Best of Huila, and since then has acquired two hectares more of farmland.
