Colombia: Ecological Producers of Planadas

Why It's Exceptional
The coffee farmers of Planadas have a mission: to build peace in a former conflict zone by selling high quality coffee to build economic prosperity.

They are truly on top of their game when it comes to sustainable farming - one of only a handful of coffee farming groups around the world using cutting edge techniques to build their own natural, complex fertilizers on-farm.

What It Tastes Like
Taste Crisp, green apple acidity owing to the very high altitudes of production. Mild sweetness, slightly diminished from the full-medium roast but still sufficiently retained for good balance
Aromas As a full-medium coffee, much of the aroma comes from gentle maillard reaction development. This is very much a classic full-medium coffee, with loads of dark chocolate or chocolate malt aroma and a rich medium-toast profile with a subtle vanilla character
Body Smooth, full and round
