This organic single-origin coffee comes from Planadas, whose name is Spanish for plains. It is ironic, since the only flat space in Planadas is the small mesa that is home to its quaint downtown and modest landing strip. Beyond lie mountains, rising and falling endlessly in a rugged stretch of the Colombian Andes where this coffee comes from. It was grown by family farmers in three villages as part of the El Paraíso project, an initiative of our friends at the exporter In-Conexus.
