SKU: ENT-SB Category:



For many years Tolima has remained hidden in plain sight between other well-known coffee growing regions because armed conflict and coca leaf production isolated small coffee producers and exposed them to high rates of violence. As conflict has subsided in recent years, locally organized associations have taken the lead in creating market access for their coffee. This traceable lot with a vibrant regional profile comes from an association called Asociación de Productores Agropecuarios de Santa Rosa (ASPRASAR), which has 67 producers with small farms in the municipalities of Herrera and Rio Blanco. Each producer has their own micro-mill where they carefully harvest cherries, depulp, ferment, wash and gently dry the parchment on raised beds. Their impeccable farm management and post-harvest practices culminate into a clean and consistent blend. But there are also just enough differences from farm to farm to create a rich complexity of flavors. An export company called Mastercol provides crucial logistical support for things like warehousing and milling coffee for export to the international market, which provides better income for everyone to reinvest in their farms and strengthen their families’ livelihoods.

    This is a can’t miss, get it while you can!
    While I have never had a coffee I didn’t love from Modest; Peru – Cafe Capili is my new fav! The aroma just opening the bag was enough to win me over but the brew ( pour over) was the clincher. Thank you for your superb roasts!

    Every bag of coffee I order from you guys is five stars! We use it for pour over, French press and cold brew. My favorite is cold brew as you can really taste the flavors in depth. Absolutely delicious!
