  • Finca El Jardin, the legendary coffee farm owned and run by Jorge Rojas Vasquez, is a true leader in the specialty coffee community in Tolima. This particular lot is a washed Caturra variety from Jorge Rojas’ impressive collection of coffee varieties – the farm is not named “El Jardin” (The Garden) for no reason!

    Jorge has dedicated El Jardin to 100% Certified Organic coffee production since 2012, and is now a member and leader of the FairTrade certified ASOPEP Cooperative. Grown at 1,840 meters, this lot is a refined, classic yet incredibly delicious representation of clean and bright Southern Tolima coffees at their very best.

  • Jorge has dedicated El Jardin to 100% Certified Organic coffee production since 2012, and is now a member and leader of the FairTrade certified ASOPEP Cooperative. Being Certified Organic by ECOCERT means that Jorge does not and cannot use any industrial or chemical inputs, fertilizers or pesticides on his farm. Instead, he uses a combination of compost generated from the pulped coffee cherries, as well as biofertilizers produced at ASOPEP’s central biofertalizer production facility in Planadas.

    100% of the coffee at El Jardin is shade grown under Camambulos and Dormilon trees among others, and is grown among productive Corn, Banana and Citrus crops. With El Jardin producing only ~75 sacks of coffee per year across two harvests, Jorge and his two employees hand pick all of the coffee from the production of his Caturra, var. Colombia, Pink Bourbon and Geisha trees for processing at the farm.

    For Jorge’s washed process, as used here, coffee is fermented in-cherry for 48 hours before being de-pulped on site and then packed wet into GrainPro bags for aerobic fermentation for 96 hours. After this stage, the mucilage is soft and sticky, and is easily removed through final washing before drying on specialized, ventilated mobile canopies or trying sheets installed at the farm.
