This is the first coffee in our spotlight series and it hails from a small municipality called Las Brisas, in the well known growing region of Tolima, Colombia. 7 producers have contributed to this outstanding lot. We know the gate price (the price the farmer receives) was 27.5% higher than the market price and the cup quality is excellent. Expect a very sweet, slightly citric character, with deep notes of orange, cocoa, and peach.
This coffee was shipped under sail power from the port of Santa Marta, Colombia and unloaded within a few miles of our roastery in Falmouth - reducing transit emissions by thousands of kgs of CO2e. To make this possible, we partnered with New Dawn Traders and The Blue Schooner company, who sailed over 7,500 nautical miles with a carbon footprint that is close to zero - a radical model of trade, which puts people and planet first.
