     Finca El Jardin is located in Tolima, Colombia, in the town of Planadas, and is managed by Jorge Elías Rojas. The farm is located at an altitude of approximately 1,857 meters and consists of approximately 3 hectares of coffee. Of these 3 hectares, approximately 4,000 are Caturra, 7,000 are Yellow Bourbon, 1,000 are Pink Bourbon, 800 are Wush Wush and 1,000 are Geisha. Jorge has some interesting ideas and since 2016, when he was introduced to specialty coffee, he is always trying to find new ways to improve the quality of his coffee. 

    He has developed his own fermentation and drying process, which starts with a very strict selection of coffee cherries during the harvest. Upon arriving to the wet-mill, the cherries are selected by hand to make sure remove immature and other low-quality beans. Afterwards, the coffee is placed in sealed tanks for 72 hours, then de-pulped and fermented again for another 38 hours in the same tanks. After this fermentation process, the coffee is washed or left to dry with the mucilage (honey).

    The first phase of drying takes place in a mechanical dryer for 28 hours at a constant temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. The coffee is then placed in fique bags for 24 hours in a dark place at an average ambient temperature of 20 to 24 degrees, and then dried again in a greenhouse for 48 hours at a temperature of around 30 to 34 degrees. The coffee is left to rest for another 24 hours in fique sacks and then dried in a mechanical dryer for 48 hours at 38 degrees. The coffee is then cooled, stabilized, and packed in bags.

  The coffee quality that results from this labor of love is both unique and delicious.  We purchased two lots from El Jardin this year, this second release- Lot #2- is comprised of the red and yellow bourbon varieties and is one of the sweetest washed coffees we have tasted this year.  It sings with notes of strawberry, candied orange and cane sugar.

We ship freshly roasted coffee Monday through Friday via UPS ground. Most orders placed before 2pm EST will ship same day.

Delayed, Lost or Stolen Packages 

We will do our best to help troubleshoot with you, but we
cannot control what happens when your package leaves the roasting
facility. Once the package has been picked up, it is out of our hands. 

Holidays, severe weather, carrier staff shortage and high package volumes are causing delays in package transit time. 

As a small business, we are unable to absorb the costs of
packages being lost in transit. We cannot refund orders that are marked
as delivered with a tracking number, even if a customer is stating they
haven’t received the package. 

For UPS claims, please email us at

When checking out, *Please make sure your address is correct!*

In order to balance getting your coffee out to
you as quickly as possible with freshness of roast we ship all coffee as
ordered within one week of the roast date. We typically roast
Wednesdays and Fridays.

In our experience most coffees
taste best after a few days rest, and high quality coffees stay at peak
flavor up to six weeks post roast.
