Description

We are excited to team up with La Real Expedición Botánica for this coffee. We have been blown away with the quality and transparency that LaREB has brought from their various producers in Colombia and we couldn’t be happier partnering with them.

LaREB is a quality-driven group dedicated to bring the best out of already good coffees focused on diverse processing protocols. They use specific producers in different regions as experimentation and learning centers to transfer knowledge to the different farms they work with, which aligns with their goals to always focus on expanding the local boundaries of specialty coffee in Colombia.

They are focused on cutting out the middle men and connecting small farmers directly to the roasters, this helps cut out unnecessary steps getting fresher higher quality coffee’s into your hands, as well as get more money to the producers making it sustainable to grow their coffees.

This coffee was grown by Ana Mustafa, in the Municipality of Pereira, in the Risaralda region of Colombia. Her farm sits between 1550 and 1650 meters and consists of the Castillo variety, which was picked over 3 days and was dry fermented for 48 hours before being washed. After the washing process, it was dried using low temperature mechanical drying, to ensure consistent drying in the high humidity nights of Colombia.
