For most coffee companies the story starts with a bean.
For us, it starts with the seed!

We are thrilled to release the fifth harvest of our farm El Cielo. We are a tiny coffee farm in the Andean mountains of Quindio Colombia. The rare quality of the volcanic soil and the high altitude (1.800 m) create special conditions for the unique quality of our coffee.

El Cielo means heaven or sky in Spanish. Imagine the cold of the early morning, standing at the top of the farm, holding a warm cup of coffee in your hands, the first sip of freshly brewed coffee, and looking at the clouds rolling up the cordillera. The feeling of being up in the sky. This harvest we present a clean and sweet, silky cup with flavors of cacao and vanilla, in balance with a vibrant acidity that reminds us of red apples. It all closes with elegant floral notes of jasmine and figs.

We used the traditional washed method and then left the coffee to ferment for 36 hours. This process ends in a very clean and silky taste, typically found in Colombia’s Coffee. Our coffee is then roasted to perfection in Kiel – Germany by Axel Datschun/ Loppo Kaffe.

The roast profile follows the natural taste of the coffee (Omni-roast). We present a light to medium roast that can be used for both filter and espresso. This style of roast presents a unique flavor profile, that pays respect to the terroir. Don’t expect the bitter notes of the classic espresso here. Our coffee is Freshly roasted, every week.

Delicious taste

Our sustainably grown coffee has a unique and exquisite flavor profile with notes of toffee caramel, melted chocolate, red wine, and roses, making each cup a true indulgence.

High-quality

Our coffee is produced using regenerative agriculture and the traditional washed method, resulting in a very clean and juicy taste that has been awarded 85 SCA points, meaning it’s excellent in quality.

responsibility

We are committed to supporting fair wages and job training for our workers, as well as conservation efforts that preserve tropical forests and their endangered species, so you can feel good about the coffee you’re drinking.

THE STORY

BEHIND THE HARVEST

This coffee has been harvested between March and May 2023 and has been awarded 84 SCA points and this means very good.

In contrast to the last three very wet years, this year Colombia has been affected by “El Niño” (The Boy). This climate event increases the amount of sunshine and decreases rainfall. In practical aspects for our farm, it means more production, however also great danger to our plants.

El Cielo is our first regenerative project and we have seen its transformation: birds and other animal species have been returning to the farm. Our plants are much more resilient to face extended periods of rain or drought. It makes us proud to see how beautiful nature is and to be a part of it.

We believe and are committed with this transformation and are focused in one thing: producing delicious high quality Colombian coffee in harmony with nature and respect for the people behind it. We strongly believe in the power of nature and aspire to understand how a productive ecosystem can work in harmony with nature and people and not against it. We seek to show that we all together have the power to make a change with the decisions we make.
