Columbia Montoya is rooted from Urrao, a town in Northwest Colombia. This specialty coffee is grown by Carmen, the farm owner who grows over 19,000 Caturra Chiroso. The plant is an altered, extraordinary species found in Antioquia, with floral note, tangerine acidity and a touch of freshness.

Plant mentation is used as the theme of graphics, supplemented by fantasy elements. Cattleya Aurea, a Columbia flower breed from mentation, is beautifully blooming from shelling. The blossom resembles the hulling process of coffee beans. Metal branches and leaves that give oxygen and life to the flower recall the aesthetics of steampunk. The rebellious match of moon-beam silver and metallic gold is a big blow to the viewers. The ornaments inspired by artisan rustic Chiva Bus on the frame complete the drawings’ Colombian style with extra imagination.
