This farm is located in the beautiful department of Tolima spanning across the mountains El Vergel, or Black Mountain, an inactive volcano that has created some of the most nutrient rich soil for planting.
Each and every green coffee bean produced here is single-origin, hand-picked, and carefully inspected.
Planted in 2016 with a quantity of 5.500 plants, this Red Borbon has been one of the best coffees produced at Finca El Vergel. Marta Rubi, the owner of the estate, founded in 2018 the WOMEN PROJECT, a team of women (initially 8) specialized in hand-picking this micro lot located next to the washing station so they would not have to carry the coffee bag for a long walk. Nowadays the project counts more than 15 women directly involved whose share 50% of the profits; and thanks to them the quality just keeps improving because of their highly accurate hand-picking, which provides with an outstanding 95% of mature cherries every harvest.
This lot is process natural, 60 hours of anaerobic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, intermittent dried at the sun for a total of 35 days and finished mechanically, stored for 2 months in grain pro for optimum maturation.
We roast all coffees, based on orders, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and we ship the next day!
