Rocko Mountain

Rocko Mountain

Yirgacheffe Ethiopia

It’s widely believed that coffee originates from Ethiopia and is therefore indigenous to the country. The town of Kaffa, from which coffee derives its name, is considered the rightful birthplace and to this day coffee grows wild in the area. More than any other country, Ethiopia has a broad genetic diversity among its coffee varieties, with each type having distinctive taste, shape and colour. It’s widely argued that coffees from the Yirgacheffe region offer one of the most unique flavour profiles in the world with a strong floral aroma and intense citrus flavour. This particular coffee has been selected from a smallholding based around the Rocko Mountain in the Haricha Woreda, Yirgacheffe.

Las Galeras

Las Galeras

Nariño Colombia

The Nariño region is strikingly mountainous and boasts no fewer than five volcanoes: Chiles (4,718 metres), Cumbal (4,764 metres), Azufral (4,070 metres), Doña Juana (4,250 metres) and Galeras (4,276 metres). This coffee was grown on the slopes of the latter - ‘Las Galeras’.

Las Galeras had been active for at least a million years before going through a period of 10 years of dormancy until 1988. Since then it has been fairly active, with the last eruption in 2013, when it affected some of the settlements at its base. The volcanic compounds have created a rich soil, perfect for coffee farming and the high altitude of cultivation allows for a slow, development of the coffee bean, giving the cup profile of Nariño its unique characteristics.

  • Region Nariño – regions surrounding the Galeras Volcano: La Florida, Sandona, Consaca
  • Altitude 1,700 to 2,200 metres above sea level
  • Farm Various Farmers from Nariño Dept.

Palo Blanco

Palo Blanco

Huehuetenango Guatemala

Finca Palo Blanco is a private small farm that has belonged to the brothers Tulio, Sergio and Ivan Ovalle since 1990. ln the centre of Finca Palo Blanco, you can find lote El Corazòn, which translates to ‘Heart’ in English. The lot is the most important part of the farm as it was the only area of the farm to continue to produce coffee during the 60’s crisis. “The lot kept alive! This lot is and will always be the heart of the farm.” says Tulio.

The region’s location means it receives hot winds blowing up from the lower parts of La Democracia resulting in ideal conditions for producing exceptional coffees.
