From family-owned farms organized through Asociación de Productores Ecológicos de Planadas (ASOPEP), an organization operating within the municipality of Planadas in the department of Tolima, Colombia. On average, each producer cultivates coffee on 6 acres of land and relies on the income from coffee production for a living. ASOPEP is currently working on acquiring their fair trade certification as another way to support and open new opportunities for coffee producers in the region.
Tasting Notes: A lighter and sweeter Colombian cup: Tolima coffees are known for their more delicate notes and caramel/chocolate edge. Medium to low acidity, this cup does have a little more brightness than your standard Colombian but not enough to push away low acidity fans. Medium bodied with excellent balance between nuttiness and caramel tones with a hint of a floral note.
