About this coffee :

The town of Planadas itself is just over 50 years old, established in 1966. The first groups to settle the area were from Antioquia and Huila, so it’s no great surprise that coffee production found a home there as well early on.

Today Planadas is a bustling commercial centre, where local farmers growing all types of produce in the foothills of the Cordillera Central bring their goods in for sale and distribution. Terrific elevation, warm days & cool nights and young, healthy trees all contribute to the fantastic quality coffee produced in and around Planadas.

For many years, Tolima has remained hidden in plain sight cradled between other well-known coffee growing regions because armed conflict and coca leaf production isolated small coffee producers and exposed them to high rates of violence. During this time the municipality of Planadas, located in the southernmost corner of Tolima, had remained an untapped source of specialty coffee where thousands of producers have been cultivating coffee on just a few acres of land intercropped with shade trees, bananas, corn, beans and sugarcane.

A coffee that screams Speciality in the midst of comfort. Highly recommend trying it as an Espresso!
