This coffee is through a program with Cooprocafes association of growers, where the members are given agronomy training in the field and support in developing their protocols for fermentation and drying. This is in order to produce a very well processed Natural from Colombia. This lot is made up of only Geisha variety, and it is has a really tasty result in the cup. It has a great perfume like character with plum fruit and so much elegance and funk.
The majority of producers in Colombia have farms that are under 3 hectares in size, which limits their capacity of production. This project aims at connecting producers in the same community by investing in them to facilitate their skills to produce distinctive coffees.
The project is in its infancy, only having operated since 2017. A group of producers have been selected based on them producing either of two varieties, Tabi or geisha and then training these farmers in how to process Natural coffee. This is done in partnership with the local association Cooprocafes, who supports the farmers in understanding how to dry whole cherry.
The farmers involved in the project are located in Gigante, which is in the central part of Huila. All of the farms participating are between 1700 to 1900 masl, they are having their main harvest between Oct/Feb and the Mitaca between May-Aug. At the moment there are 6 farmers participating in producing natural Geisha coffees, and 22 farmers participating in producing natural Tabi coffees.

Light (ideal for a lighter bodied, intense espresso or a very adventurous filter coffee )
Earl Grey & Rosehip
It’s calm with a lovely lightly bitter black tea aftertaste, has a grounded structure, and it doesn’t have that super typical natural funkiness (though definitely still a natural). There's fruit as you'd expect: papaya and lime. We're happy to share this easy drinking coffee as we roll into summertime.
Plum & Almonds
Having spent some time living in Andean Ecuador, only a few hundred kilometers south from where finca Los Idolos is located in Nariño, Colombia in the south western corner of Colombia, I am reminded of the immense variety of geography, climates, ecosystems, and subsequent biodiversity of this area of the world. This coffee from Edgar Meneses at Finca Los Idolos has a plum-like acidity, gentle sweetness, and is well balanced by an almond and creamy yet clear and clean body.
Honey & Rose
That feeling when it’s still a little brisk outside, and you can’t help but sit in the bright sunshine, letting it warm you after the long dark winter. That is what this coffee is — it’s highly anticipated springtime, finally right around the corner. This cup contains honey sticky sweetness and rose; it’s balanced with a hint of refreshing bitters.
Everyone has their favorite. Be it Kvik Lunsj, Firkløver, or Helnøtt, we all have that one particular Norwegian chocolate bar that we gravitate towards. This tasty coffee from Finca Los Pirineos in El Salvador is those of you who can’t get enough Fruktnøtt in your life.
Orange & Almonds
A bright Colombian; this is a classic coffee from Hugo Guarnizo in the Tarqui department of Colombia. It was harvested during the secondary smaller harvest that occurs in Colombia; this is known colloquially as the mitaka.
Dried Apricot & Spices
Sold out. A wintry perfection of dried fruits and cardamom spice. Just what you need to warm up in cozy comfort.
Star Anise & Dark Syrup
Sold out. Another stunning coffee from the Caballero Collective in Honduras. This coffee has the best of both worlds, with a lot of brightness and a lovely, full, syrupy body.
