Colombia La Esmeralda

$ 18.00

This coffee is a very special treat from the department of Tolima in the center west of Colombia. The coffee farm was a Cup of Excellence Winner in 2015 and has ranked as one of the best coffees of Colombia. This coffee is very special for us as our Head of Roasting was judging in the Cup of Excellence in 2015 and for him this was clearly one of the the best coffees from Colombia.

Luis Hernando Morales, the owner of Finca La Esmeralda, arrived in Gaitania in 1976, when he was 11 years old, accompanied by his mother, who was in search of a paternal inheritance. Since then he got closer to the is roots and began to learn about coffee growing. Now at the age of 49 he took a chance to participate part in Cup of Excellence, because he was confident that he had a good-quality coffee. And his hard work paid of and he became a winner of the Cup of Excellence in Colombia in 2015. He has always worked along with his wife, with whom he has two children, who have been raised thanks to the earnings of the fruits yielded from the coffee plantations in his farm.
