Fresh Colombias are just so great, and getting to taste a bunch of new offerings is always a highlight when the season arrives. We have a bunch of producers we love working with, but Ivan Molano is up near the top. He's an incredibly passionate and kind coffee producer from Planadas, Tolima. What strikes us most about Ivan is his deep love for his work and his family and his infectious excitement about the future. Ivan is stoked about the potential of the specialty coffee industry and is eager to plant new varietals and experiment with his coffee in order to keep raising the quality, which couldn't be more apparent than in this lot of Tabi. Of the fresh crop offerings from Colombia, this one was among the most memorable. At the end of last summer, Ivan suffered an accident that resulted in the loss of his thumb, but is persevering despite the injury and remaining true to his passion for coffee production.
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.
