Delivery Frequency

Planadas is an isolated volcanic area, nestled between two national parks. Coffee transportation is notoriously difficult, taking 12 hours of driving on dirt roads to reach the capital of the province.

Planadas, Tolima

With fertile volcanic soil, and altitudes up to 2,000 metres above sea level, it's a great place to grow coffee - despite the challenges. We've sourced this coffee from The Green Collection, whose 'boots-on-the-ground' approach to sourcing coffee gives us some of our closest links to coffee producers.

Balanced & Jammy

 Coffees from Planadas have a jammy sweetness, along with the chocolatey body typical of Colombian coffees. It's a great all-rounder, and a good 'stepping stone' into the world of specialty coffee.

Washed

Ripe coffee cherries are picked, and sorted to remove any defects. They then pass through a depulper, where the felsh of the cherry is removed, leaving behind a sticky mucilage layer. Next, the beans are fermented, and the mucilage layer breaks down, leaving a clean coffee bean behind. The beans are then carefully dried, resulting in a clean-tasting coffee with natural sweetness and complexity.

Medium Intensity

Medium Intensity

Sweet, complex cherry and raisin notes offer up some acidity, backed up by rich dark chocolate. Well balanced, sweet and jammy.
