Well balanced, double fermented coffee which is full bodied, smooth, rounded, complex and expressive.
Gustavo consistently produces excellent coffees he is in the process of converting to organic. With the combining of the family farms he is one of the largest farms in the region. The largest portion of the farm is forest which presents a wonderful opportunity in further developing the production of shade grown coffees

Planadas: Tolima is one of the most isolated coffee producing regions of Colombia located in the Central Colombia Andes mountains of Tolima nestling between the vast Parques Nacionales Natural Nevado and the Parque Nacional Natural Cordillera De Los Pichachos Andes Mountain ranges. With very limited access, other than through the town of Coyaima, mainly dirt road with conditions permitting, it is a 12-hour road trip from Ibague the province capital
The area falls in the middle of the conflict zone for many years controlled by the FARC; a forgotten region left to the discretion of the people to basically fend for themselves, having to comply with the rules or law’s set by the FARC, restricted to selling their crops to either the FNC or local trilladora’s and receiving at best only commercial prices
