Located in La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia, DelAgua Coffee is the first to adopt La Palma & El Tucan’s Neighbours & Crops model, working with small scale producers in the municipality of Cienaga, Magdalena.
This coffee comes to us from Jorge Arias of La Libertad. Jorge started working with coffee when he was 16 years old picking coffee cherry during the harvest period. 25 years later, Jorge finally had enough savings to purchase La Libertad, located at 1,500m in the La Paz village with 3.5 hectares and approximately 13,000 coffee trees. Jorge tends to the farm himself throughout the year. Throughout the harvest he employs just four workers for selective hand picking and processing as well as manual weeding and pruning.
We’re lucky to showcase three naturally processed Castillo coffees from DelAgua Coffee. These coffees are from the same region, of the same varietal with the same process methods. Explore all three individually, or in this pack to see how microclimates and different producers impact the final cup.

You may have noticed that we have stopped labelling some coffees as “Filter Roast Profile”. We felt that our previous labelling of microlots did not do justice to our coffees and what we think they are capable of. We want you to feel free to use the coffee any way you like. Read more here.
