Finca El Jardin is located in Planadas, Tolima, Colombia and run by Jorge Rojas. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,850 meters and consists of approximately 3 hectares in coffee. Of those 3 hectares, approximately 4,000 are Caturra, 7,000 are Yellow Colombia, 1,000 are Pink Bourbon and 1,000 are Geisha.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is honey-process coffee?
Honey-process coffee is a technique where some of the coffee cherry's mucilage, often referred to as 'honey', is left on the bean during the drying process. This processing method imparts a sweet, complex flavor to the coffee, adding depth and a unique taste profile. Our Colombia Geisha utilizes this technique for an intriguing and satisfying brew.
What is so special about Colombian coffee?
Colombian coffee is cherished for its high-quality beans, consistently smooth taste, and well-balanced acidity. Grown in unique microclimates of the Colombian Andes, these beans often exhibit notes of caramel, nuts, and fruits. The exceptional flavor and quality of Colombian coffee, like our Colombia Geisha, make it a favorite among coffee lovers worldwide.
What is light roast coffee?
Light roast coffee refers to coffee beans that have been roasted for a shorter period, resulting in a lighter color and no oil on the surface of the beans. These roasts are known for their vibrant, fruity, and acidic flavors, which often allow the unique taste profiles of the coffee's origin to come to the fore. They offer a more nuanced, delicate flavor compared to darker roasts.
