Tasting notes of Tropical fruits, green grape acidity and a caramel sweetness.

Planadas: Tolima is one of the most isolated coffee producing regions of Colombia located in the Central Colombia Andes mountains of Tolima nestling between

the vast Parques Nacionales Natural Nevado and the Parque Nacional Natural Cordillera De Los Pichachos Andes Mountain ranges. With very limited access, other than through the town of Coyaima, mainly dirt road with
conditions permitting, it is a 12-hour road trip from Ibague the province capital.

The area falls in the middle of the conflict zone for many years controlled by the FARC; a forgotten region left to the discretion of the people to basically fend for themselves, having to comply with the rules or law's set by the FARC, restricted to selling their crops to either the FNC or local trilladora’s and receiving at best only commercial prices.

At these altitude’s of 1600/2000 is where the real high-quality Specialties are found; the terra enriched in volcanic soils, numerous fresh mountains streams.

Coffees are all grown the artisanal way, fully washed and fermented up to 36 hours, sun dried, only selecting the finest of the beans when ripe all are hand-selected.

The Planadas area represents 48 coffee producing hamlets representing 6821 small farms ranging from .5 to 6 hectares, renown for producing some of Colombia’s finest specialty Micro-lot coffees, are now gaining a reputation
for their higher quality commercial community coffees.
