Food Spotlight: Wake Up Arequipe Light Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter is an ideal product for when hunger strikes, to avoid those pangs in your stomach, because with only one serving of 36 gr you give your body that energy it needs and that supply of protein to take care of it.

Many athletes consume a serving of peanut butter as a source of energy prior to their workout, including doing so during training for increased performance.

For children it is an excellent option when it comes to lunch, in addition to its great flavor, gives them complete nutrition; helping to make their systems fit for normal development.

The ingredients used in the preparation of our peanut butters are subjected to previous quality controls, so we can guarantee that they are products made with a standard production process in which the appropriate equipment to obtain a quality product.

It is normal to find a small oil separation that is generally located on the top of the container, we recommend that when first using the product you mix this oil again with the peanut butter in order to obtain a consistency and texture equal to that of the first days.

Coffee Spotlight: La Colombe Colombia – El Faldon



  • REGION: Huila
  • FARM: El Faldon
  • FARMER: Arnulfo Leguizamo
  • PROCESSING: Fully Washed and Sun Dried
  • VARIETY: Caturra
  • ALTITUDE: 1,840 meters
  • CUPPING NOTES: Lime, Passion Fruit, Sugar Cookie

Why You'll love it: The altitude of El Faldon coffee farm, and owner Arnulfo Leguizamo’s meticulous approach to picking and processing his beans, contributes to this coffee’s beautiful citrus notes and sugary finish.

Story of The Bean: This roast both honors and elevates Colombia’s heirloom Caturra coffee variety, first introduced to the country in 1952. Grown high in the mountains in the Huila region of Colombia, it consists of the ripest coffee cherries, carefully picked, fully washed, and dried in the sun. This processing causes the beans to take on bright flavors of passion fruit and lime, as well as a deep sweetness.

Colombian growers are called ‘cafeteros’ and producer Arnulfo Leguizamo is a model cafetero in that he pays close attention to the quality and taste of his coffee. Four years ago, this Caturra won 1st place at the Colombian Cup of Excellence Competition, and Arnulfo used the winnings to take his family to see the ocean. Arnulfo’s work, this beautiful brew, represents Colombia’s famous coffee industry at its best."

Packaging Spotlight: Blend – Premium fruit & vegetable drink




Designed by
Siegenthaler & Co
Bogota, Colombia


We were asked to create a brand and packaging for a juice whose content was 100% fruits and vegetables, no flavorings or sweeteners and no water added. They are 5 different mixtures, inspired by the tropical flavors of Colombia.
Drinking one of these juices means to us to be transported to the tropics, but we didn't want to fall into the obvious way of illustrating the fruits. So we decided to represent the skies over the tropical sunrises and sunsets.

About the company:

In October of 1995 Doug Zell and Emily Mange left San Francisco to open an in-store coffee roaster-retailer on Broadway Avenue on the north side of Chicago. At that time they were simply hoping to bring great, fresh-roasted coffee to their own coffeebar with the help of a charming, but perhaps too often erratic 12-kilo roaster.

Coffee Spotlight: Stumptown Coffee Roasters – COLOMBIA SAN ISIDRO



We do not add any flavors or additives to our coffee beans. Our coffee is just coffee.


ALIRIO AGUILERA OSPINA managed to make a number of updates on his farm and processing this year despite a medical setback. He renovated a lot of his Caturra plants to ensure more vigorous plants. He also removed his demucilager, and switched to strictly depulping his cherry per our suggestion. He ferments his coffee for about 24 hours and soaks it for 12 hours. He completed building his raised parabolic drying beds and used them successfully to dry this lot.
