COLOMBIA SIERRA NEVADA
Single Farm, Farmgate
Warm and comforting, this coffee is really something special. We are excited to roast these beans which have more flavorful and unique cupping characteristics than a basic grade Colombian coffee. They deliver a full body with balanced acidity and notes of caramel, vanilla, and creamy milk chocolate. It’s definitely a favorite for a beautifully smooth cup.

About the grower: Jorge Becerra Becerra is a third generation coffee grower, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. Jorge’s 24 acre microlot farm is located in the dramatically steep Sierra Nevada mountain range just 26 miles from the Caribbean Ocean. This warm and humid coast blends with snow-capped mountains in the same stunning view. The unique climates of the lower slopes with large elevation and temperature ranges produce outstanding coffee beans.
What is Farmgate? Farmgate price is a general term for what the farmer actually gets paid for their beans. It allows coffee producers to make premium prices in reward for coffee quality, and to reinvest to improve quality even more in the future. As a roaster, we can verify that the price we pay for green coffee makes it to the people who are responsible for the great quality of our beans.
