This single origin Colombian coffee is produced in Tolima, one of the 32 departments of Colombia, located in the Andean region, in the center-west of the country.

When ripe, the coffee cherries are picked and go through an initial flotation sorting to remove under-ripes, sticks, and general debris before passing through a pulping machine and working their way down the washing channels to the fermentation tanks. Here, they will sit for typically 8-14 hours, before moving to the drying patios or guardiolas for controlled drying down to 10-12% moisture.

Typically in Colombia, this is carried out on the farm, with processed cherries then being taken to a dry mill for careful grading, tasting, and blending. The coffee is stored in parchment until ready for export, when it is hulled at the dry mill and bagged for shipping.
