Few places are more well-known for their coffee than Colombia, the land of Juan Valdez. However, not all Colombian beans are the same. This is a large country filled with diverse landscapes, from rainforests to mountaintops, two coastlines, and everything in between. Just as the land changes, so also does the climate and the harvest time.
Generally speaking, Colombian Arabica is known for its pronounced aroma, acidity, medium-high body, and cleanness. Beans from here are often described as well-balanced or mild.
Tolima is the third largest coffee producing region of Colombia and accounts for 12% of the country's annual production. Located in west-central Colombia, this region is fully inscribed by the Andean mountains and the Magdalena river basin, making it rather remote and challenging to access, but producing some of the richest coffees in the country.
Our Colombian roast is described as plump, with juicy acidity; silky-smooth, delicate mouth-feel. The rich-toned finish consolidates to almost citrus-leaning hops, with hints of sweet thyme, even mango, maple syrup, chocolate cream, and cola notes
Our Colombian Tolima is all that: well balanced, round bodied, with bright acidity and amazing notes of flavors.
