Colombia

Las Orquideas

Named after the national flower of Colombia, this female-produced washed coffee is a sweet treat. We’ve found peach and lime acidity, with vanilla notes in the body.

It is no secret that Colombia is well known, not only for its amazing coffee, but also for the beautiful flowers produced in the country. Colombia has an immense biodiversity of flora, but the orchid, the national flower, is the most emblematic and itโ€™s found in various places around the country in its diverse varieties and forms.

Las Orquideas coffee, produced in the region of Tolima, acknowledges this beautiful and elegant flower that represents the richness and tenaciousness of female coffee growers. As the orchids, which abound in the region, these coffees vary but they always stand out for their uniqueness.

The producers behind this coffee are fierce, resilient and go-getters. They stand out in a world traditionally dominated by men in which, every day, they decide to take the reins of their coffee farms and produce great coffee, always with passion and love for the product and the land. Their coffee acknowledges these women and makes them visible in a competitive world.

Additionally, in their mission to produce exciting lots, these female coffee growers are also committed to protecting the environment, producing coffee organically with close attention to detail.

These women are keen to continue learning in this journey of specialty coffee and continue improving the quality.

The location

Coffee from Colombia

Colombia is one of the largest coffee producers in the world and benefits greatly from having one of the most unique and complex set of micro-climates of all coffee producing nations.

Farm processes

Washed process

Machines are used to remove the flesh from the coffee cherry before being fermented in water, washed again, and finally sun dried. This process tends to result in more distinct, cleaner flavours.
