The Planadas region of Tolima, Colombia is an isolated volcanic area, nestled between two national parks. Transportation of coffee is notoriously difficult, taking 12 hours of driving on dirt roads to reach the capital of the province.

Notes from the team:
For us, Colombian coffees make one word spring to mind every time - jammy. While they often have red fruit notes, like redcurrants and cherries, the way that Colombian coffees behave in the roaster often mean that these fruit flavours are more like cooked, stewed fruits.
We have sourced this coffee from The Green Collection, who we have formed a great relationship with in the last couple of years. It’s great to be able to work so directly with organisations like this, knowing that the steps back to farm level are minimal - leading to better prices paid to coffee farmers.
