The selection of our Colombia coffee was led by the producers commitment to quality, conservation of the environment and their community. This coffee from the Gaitania region ticked all of the prerequisites, and a communities' diligence is truly reflected in the final cup. A bright, balanced peach melba backed with a subtle lemon acidity and caramel. It's nothing but pallet pleasing on filter and espresso.
Gaitania is a village located in the Planadas municipality in the department of Tolima. The charm of the coffee is completely reflective of the people of Planadas. It was a region in which political prisoners were sheltered from the Liberal party. Over time, the Liberales and Conservadores established a solid relationship consequently leading to the famous kindness shown by the people of Planadas.
This quality coffee is produced by the indigenous community - Nasa Wesx. The ACEDGA and ASCISP cooperatives collaborate and work with the community to develop and distribute their coffee.
The Nasa Wesx community work towards the quality and conservation of the environment and have strived to certify all of their coffee organic.
A cup of true quality from a community encompassing compassion.
