Farm to Cup Story
The department of Tolima is found in the mountainous Andean region of Colombia. It is traversed by the Magdalena River and populated by over one million people. Here, the tropical climate of the tierra templada (temperate land), as well as the altitude and water availability, make for ideal coffee growing conditions. As a result, coffees originating from this region are particularly tasty. In a cup of Boneshaker Colombia, you’ll taste the complex, yet refined flavors that altitude and great processing yield. Rich plum sweetness is given further depth by notes of cocoa, lemongrass, red grape, and a grapefruit acidity, all rounded out by a medium body.
This particular coffee was grown by a group of indigenous farmers (ASCISP) in the region who harvest and sell their coffee to a mill after it reaches full ripeness. Once the coffee arrived at the mill, it was processed using a fully washed process and made ready for shipment after being dried on patios. This processing method translates to crisp, clean flavors in the final cup.
Just as the name suggests, this coffee is meant to get your bones shaking, and whether you brew it as espresso, or slow it down in a pour-over, it’s sure to do just that!
