The department of Nariño on Colombia's southern border has some of the highest mountains in the country, and some of the best coffee. El Tablón de Gomez, situated in the department's southeast, is a small community with deep indigenous heritage and culture that has only recently begun coffee production due to the presence of armed guerilla groups operating in the area for the past few decades. The producers who contribute to this community blend belong to the Specialty Coffee Cooperative of Nariño, and operate some of the highest farms in the region, adding to the clarity and complexity of this coffee. We were excited by this lot on the cupping table because of its clarity, sweetness, and juciness.
In light of these strange COVID-19 times, we've made some changes to our roasting routine in an effort to take extra care. For the foreseeable future, roasting will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays only, shipping out Tuesdays and Thursdays. This means your order will arrive one day later than it normally would.
That one-day lag is caused by the decision to stagger roasting and bagging days in order to keep operations as safe and sanitized as humanly possible. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support during these challenging weeks.
All of our coffees are roasted to order and shipped as whole beans. Orders are roasted based on demand.
